  2. Dunkirk - old and new

    Dunkirk way back was a lovely village and only sort of incorporated fairly recently into the city. Not clever enough to decipher the ancient text but Druids ..Scotland and Dunkirk have a big connection and some fella Orange ( not william of). Peveril or Darkazana might know more..its a bit clever for me.
  3. I thought about that Ann..good post and single.

    These are on flicker cliff..they often pop up when you search..head is addled at the mo! Typed version somewhere. Similar on Cranmer st.query a while ago..a postcard sent to Canada in early 1900's describing Woodborough rd.etc..my fat fingers often delete stuff! Ian

  9. Ossington Villas?

    This very brave chaplain lived on Ossington Villas and sadly perished in 1918.He was a VC. DSO.MC. I will look further as there was a small chapel carnie..just down from 'Osso'. I am wondering if he was attatched to that. It became a methodist or pentecostal church in my go.. '61-'73. Theodore Bailey Hardy.RIP.

    Carni there is a typed version somewhere. Lot of memories and stories around Ossington...but do not know if anyone is bothered.
  11. Sunday Dinner Memories

    We had great neighbours. Who took me under their wing. Firstly they introduced me to roast parsnips..sip of Luncheon Ale..and she did a very strange thing with her greens...epsom or some kind of salts? Was this to keep the colour? Also a breeze block size chunk of white cap went in the roasting tin ... At least your arteries hardened nostalgically then.

    Carni..an old postcard with ossington Villas on it. Up until the 3o's the road between Nrth Sherwood st/ peel st and Mansfield road was known as Babbington st.it was a bit rough Carnie..thought you knew a lady on Major st or Matlock St. Great community spirit though.
