The pub on the left appears to be called "The Gate Inn" suggesting that it is on an old entrance to the city.

I'm sure there's a site where old Nottingham pubs is listed. If we can find that it may help.

I'm also pretty sure it ain't the 70's either, early 60's maybe?

Doesn't ring any bells with me...possibly not even Nottm. Not the first time PTP has been wrong...but nobody's perfect.

The pub is a Home Ales pub (I know that doesn't mean owt !) Maybe that's where a mistake has been made.

In your first picture I can see the sign 'Pepper Street'

The first image shows Pepper Street closed off.

This is probably due to the building of the extension to M&S and/or the building of NEM House (National Employers Mutual General Insurance Association) at the top of Pepper Street.

Thanks Stu

I see exactly where it is now.

The remains of Pepper Street (A Nicholson, 2004).

So the Home Ales pub in the original photo... 'The Fountain'?

Interesting. Pepper Street area, the original home of printing in Nottingham:

'Half way between Pepper Street and St. Peter's Gate, Aiscough in 1708 set up the first printing press in Nottingham and he prospered so that, as we have already seen, he had to transfer his business to Barker Gate to more commodious premises.'

Possibly rebuilt as such , as I'm pretty sure The Fountain was quite a 'new build'
