Nottingham from above - Shakespeare Street

Recommended Posts

I am now remembering..that lots of houses were of 3 storey..with the configuration of kitchen on the ground floor and the others above...the lay of the land might have dictated this ..due to inclines on Clarendon st.rising up to Talbot St.55859-1-280-99999-unpad.jpgTaken by the late Reg..from the blind School..i forgot Lamberts could be accessed from Chaucer St.

Shakespeare Street..quite some time ago was the venue for Jewish hangings...most took place at the Forest/ Mansfield Rd.junction.

The Registery Office that was..was Nottms original Poor Laws building and the section between Moons and the YMCA was Angelo Terrace.64734-1-280-99999-unpad-1.jpgThe vantage point here being Gill Street ..more fine dwellings here took on Watts and lost.

I lived on neighbouring Alma Close..about 2 stone ago.

Sorry. I'm a bit lost! Is that St Andrew's Church to the left of the houses?

I think it is the side elevation David.

Do you recall the square grassed quadrangle with basilicas?..it was near Belgrave Square..and lots of WW1 recovering men ..rested here.

No... I'm too young... and have a bad memory at the best of times! If the houses are on Chaucer Street, could it be the Patrick Spiritual Church shown on the detailed map last Thursday? On the far right of those houses I can see the tower of the factory on Talbot Street,

Correct jonab...i recall the bottles of VAT 69 and Haig lined along a mirrored bar.55860-1-280-99999-unpad.jpgSome delightful residences in this whole area.

Two striking abodes on Chaucer St.here.

Was there a connection with a Professor and DH Lawrence on Clarendon St?
