    Backyard Britain.

    I wonder if like me any member went back to the house they lived in years before?..I could not believe how small the house was..certainly had to be broadminded..wash and toilet timetable was pretty basic! We were the last to move out...as we refused Clifton, Aspley and St.Anns. I regret i never lifted our street sign. When i visit Nottingham now..i nip and have a look, as little bits still exist. Was it me ?...the politics regarding the privvy..you weren't supposed to chat to next door when 'engaged'.

    1950's Robin Hood Restaurant?

    I do recall it being closed for years. The Robin Hood Milk Bar...as mentioned and a photo recently posted..Robin Hood and Little John Restaurant was opposite the Albert Hotel on Derby Rd. There is a picture on the net of recently passed actor Bill Maynard in the Robin Hood Milkbar.

    Good spot for curryhouses though Oz...took nearly 30 years for it to come into it's own.
