    I too was sent to Sandersons, the one on Wilford Road beside the Magna pub for a pound of white and 1/2 a pound of dark. Dark was eaten raw for tea like Carni, the rest with onions next day with mash and mushy peas, not forgetting the HP sauce. I never tried it just the white sauce on my mash and peas.

    Buses in Nottingham

    I remember the compound on the corner of Manvers and Pennyfoot street being erected. After the workmen left local kids all flocked to it as the gates were up but no wire fencing on them and they made a great swing. I was about 4 year old at the time but couldn't get a swing as I couldn't reach the bar to hold on. Somehow or other my right thumb got squashed in the gate as it swung to. Split it to the first knuckle, luckily a neighbour was just getting off the bus took me home and got her Dad who was the Landlord of the Poplar Tree at that time to take me to the General Hospital in his car. (He later moved to the Ferry Boat in Wilford). Pleased to say thumb still works 70 od years later.
