Wondered if anyone could help me, my mum died a few years ago and as a child she grew up in a place called Radford House in the late 1930s and 40s. I have a fantastic oil painting that was left in her inhertence surrounded by hedges and fields. I believe the house was sold sometime in the 50s and became a car showroom by the name of Butterworth &Walker, it was eventually pulled down in 1959. What I'm trying to understand is where exactly was the house situated, I believe it was on Ilkeston Road but unsure where, my mothers maiden name was Hopewell as in the furniture people. Many thanks
A new Raleigh website went "live" this week. Contains lots of interviews with ex-employees and loads of previously unseen photographs taken by them. Also press cuttings and memorabilia. For once there are contributions from people across all departments, not just the shopfloor/Alan Sillitoe viewpoint. Apologies if someone else has loaded this up elsewhere (didn't check!) Here's the link (hope it works) http://new.iworkedatraleigh.com/
My quest to track down some folk continues. Would anyone know what became of Radford Rd Council School , potentially aka New Basford Council School. I know it was in business in the early quarter of the 1900s at least, but that's all. Cheers
