  1. My Grandfather was a Caretaker to Jesse Boots Factory on Parkinson Street c 1910. Anyone have any photos of Parkinson Street about the time ? Thanks Margaret
  2. I have ancestors that used to live in the early 1900s at No 4 Fisher Gate. Any one any photos of Fisher Gate about this time Thanks Margaret
  3. I have posted before but I would like to revisit. There is a Housing Development called Fields Farm, very close to the old Trowell Pit, Stapleford Nottingham. It appears to be having immense difficulties with flooding. Does anyone have any knowledge of whether the land it was on was once mining soil They are having to use pile drivers to stabilise the housing. It looks as if they may be building on rafts.
  4. If you leave the Victoria Centre going North up Mansfield Road, go through the traffic lights where the road turns right to Woodborough Road , then go first right (sometimes a long wait to turn!) At the next set of traffic lights, opposite,where you wait to turn right onto Huntingdon Street, was where the old Welbeck Street was situated. My wife ,was born in Welbeck Street in the late 1940s. We have not been able to find any photos of the old street and houses Any photos, or reference to any photos would be very much appreciated
  5. My wife was born in Welbeck Street, off Huntingdon Road Nottingham in the late 1948s.

     

    We have been trying to access any old photo of the street but so far have been unsuccessful.

     

    Does anyone have any old photos of the area or know where we can find one?

     

    Thanks

  6. Thanks for the above response. The 2013 posting is very informative but the photos never materialised. I would be very interested to know if any photos, especially with the Green Dome , actually exist?
  7. The Golf Club was opened in the 1990s Was it built on the site of a former hospital? I seam to recall a large building on the hill with a green roof

  11. Having a family is never boring. Putting yourself as No 1 ahead of everyone else in the family is Boring !
  12. Remember the TSB on the corner. Friendly staff and no security shield!
  13. We have recently had a new Virgin TiVo box and yes it can take a while. If the TV has not been used for a while (eg overnight) it has to " Wake up" and that can take about 40 secs. If it has been used within a few hours it takes 10 to 20 secs. Its never instant. It will turn itself off if its been in use for about 4 hours but an on screen notification is given.
