  1. I used to work at the little chef, I was one of the last people employed there before it shut down in february 2005. Loved the place, the only problem was you didnt know it was there untill you'd passed it. No wonder we never had very many people in.
  2. Netherfield was opened in 1878 under the name of Colwick, renamed in 1883 to Netherfield and Colwick, renamed again in 1901 as Netherfield, renamed AGAIN in 1925 as Netherfield and Colwick again and then renamed a final time in 1974 to Netherfield. Carlton was opened in 1846 as Carlton and Netherfield and renamed Carlton in 1974.....confused? i am. But yes would definatly prefere an ornate building compared to a bus stop on concreat.

  4. Would anybody happen to know when the station buildings for Carlton Station were demolished? It must be before 1972 and i wonder if anybody has any other photo's of it besides this one. Looks like it used to be rather beautiful.
  5. Used to be one in the back garden of my old house in valley road, carlton, Get alot around here though
  6. I remember going up pennyfoot street or some street around there as a kid and some of the tarmac on the road had worn away revealing the original cobbles and some rails from the old tramlines. I preseum most of the old tramlines are still in situ around nottingham, just tarmacked over
  7. I wonder why they left some of the lines in situ when they built the industrial estate in colwick? http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=nottingham&hl=en&ll=52.956911,-1.077974&spn=0.000394,0.001321&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&channel=np&hnear=Nottingham,+United+Kingdom&t=h&z=20&layer=c&cbll=52.956911,-1.077974&panoid=qR1U-UvA91_cpBoIzuZylw&cbp=12,124.36,,0,13.98
  8. sausage, egg and chips......poached eggs and mushroom on brown toast.....but the only way you can have a fry up is with a fried egg.
  9. I know this house was on thackerays lane as it says, but i was just wondering as to where the house would of stood in relation to todays streets. http://www.picturethepast.org.uk/frontend.php?action=printdetails&keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;NCCC002729&prevUrl=
  10. its nice but stupidly expensive, we love the summer palace on carlton hill, so much friendlier, cheaper but the quality of the food is just as good if not better
  11. My great grandmother was living on that road when that photo was taken, her husband had died previously in the year, My dad can remember Henry Lloyd ( the man posing) and he can remember the bloke who owned the black van halfway down the road. It hasnt really altered since that photo was taken.

  13. Those houses on the right of the caroline club was Locomotive Terrence, my great grandad lived at number 7 when he was a kid, with his dad working at the sheds as a railway wagon repair.
  14. aye mapperley tunnel did collapse in the early 60's, that was the only reason that line was closed, they didnt think it was economical to repaire and reopen. By the way my dad used to live at 25 deabill street between 1957 & 1962
  15. aye , we used to say it was haunted aswell lol
  16. my dad used to say the caroline club was really popular but for some reason it fell out of fashion and shut down at some point in the mid 80's
  17. I was there between 1993 and 1998, i can remember all the old buildings that they have now torn down including the sports hall, outside toilets and the 3 outside class rooms on the right hand side that i think included the cookery room. My dad was there sometime in the early 60's and early 70's, i do remember him saying that displine was tough even then.
  18. its massive shame they tore down these amazing peice's of architecture like the black boy, the moot hall, viccy station, trinity church to mention but a few, after all its my generation that have missed out.
  19. Yes they lived at number 7 Harrogate street, You can maybe remember my dad comming up to see them then, Trevor Peck. When my great grandma died we took over the house and we didng finally move out untill 1998.
  20. aye, linda peck is my cousin , if its the same one your on about, then her siblings were margory, maurice, alan, brian and there parents arthur and winnie.
