    In a previous life, you must've been a cat, with an allowance of more than the usual 9 lives.
  2. A few bits of information adding to what DAVIDW has provided. In the early 1900s, Richard William Gleave lived at 34 Bridgford Road, West Bridgford, and his office was at 8 St Peter's Church Walk (now buried under M & S). A few years earlier, Calvert & Gleave (Architects & Surveyors) had an office at 18 Low Pavement, Nottingham, which has survived remarkably unspoiled.

    Uncle John's scrapbook - Forest in 3rd Div south

    I think there's a photo of that area (before building) in another thread https://nottstalgia.com/forums/topic/16020-minutiae-bulwell-common-and-more/?tab=comments#comment-503273 (scroll down a bit)

    Uncle John's scrapbook - Forest in 3rd Div south

    That's the place I was referring to; we've each described it from opposite sides. This is the place - and the pitch - with the "old" stand marked on the left. For reference, the arrow at the top is the railway bridge at Northern Baths. Note also the coal train going north.

    R101 crashed in 1931, (and consequently R100 was abandoned) which doesn't tie in with meeowd's comments about seeing something in 1943-45.

    djhibbert who made that original post, hasn't logged in since January 2016, so you may not get a response. But as you seem to have family connections, you could try sending him a PM (Personal Message) via Nottstalgia, which might catch his attention.

    Is that the pitch which still exists, near the railway, over Vernon Road ?

    Does anybody know your real name ?

    I saw this recently on a Facebook page for ex-Clifton types. The person who posted the photo named most of the pupils in it and apparently this is Timothy Hirst, around 1967-68. I wouldn't have recognised him, but it might ring a few bells with you.

    This is what it looks like these days https://goo.gl/maps/EaRTFJE4iqF2 To add to what WW said, it was midway between Grannis Drive and Aylestone Drive.

    maddy079, take a look at this old thread from a while ago. https://nottstalgia.com/forums/topic/16897-storer-street-carlton-road/?tab=comments#comment-542334
  13. And you still think like that when you walk into Wetherspoons in the morning.
  14. Some of the above posts may be difficult to understand. Unfortunately, they've been hit by the 'Photobucket-Postimage' problem, so we are left with references to photos which no longer exist.

    Carni, can you translate that last bit ? (I realize you may have been struck by predictive texting)
