Nope... I couldn't find it either on Broadway using that Maps Link.

 

Surely there is someone who knows of it, where it is or If, Why and How could it have been allowed to be removed.

It's probably been removed, and weighed in by gippo's.

Just out of interest, does anyone know what the Ad Lib night club was before, and when it became a night club?

I don't remember it, but it would've been approximately where the "Element" shop now is.

Ian, I knew Boneham and Turner very well, that imposing factory façade was on Nottingham Road as you headed out of Mansfield towards Nottingham.

Famous for their precision engineered drill and jig bushes, dowel pins, clamping and locating components. I had many mates that worked there and this year they have been in business for 100 years. I believe that they are now located in Sutton in Ashfield.

Unfortunately too true and in that era they were probably made on British made machine tools such as Ward Capstan and Turret lathes, Archdale drills and mills, James Butler slotters, Churchill or Jones and Shipman cylindrical and surface grinders. Dean, Smith and Grace centre lathes, Newall jig borers,           J. Parkinson (Parkson) milling machines.

For Ian123 they are on Oddicroft Industrial Estate in Sutton in Ashfield

Anyone recall printers called Priestl(e)y & Swan(n). It was behind Peter's church  - quite a large firm, apparently. My dad worked there in the '50's - early '60's until he was diagnosed as being allergic to printing ink.

 

I remember he used to bring home conkers in the autumn picked up from the churchyard.

Boneham & Turners first factory on Duke St.

Fantastic photos Ian, well done to find them.

It must have been a bugger to wheel that trolley on the uneven flagstone floor.

Was it Duke Street in Mansfield? If so it was one of many streets demolished when they put in the inner ring road.

I have a relative who was a Nottingham lace maker and worked for a while in the lace market can’t remember which factory though. He was a bit dismissive of some of the more modern Nottingham lace saying that it wasn’t as it wasn’t made of the right yarn. I have some beautiful lace that he gave me which is wrapped up and kept in a drawer as I don’t have much use for table clothes. Shame really.
