Nottingham from above - Daybrook


Recommended Posts

Daybrook Square in the 1920s. Mansfield Road going off to the left and the road into Arnold on the right. The Morley factory in the centre of the picture is still there but has been turned into apartments.

And now Sainsburys car park is slap bang in the middle.

Love these photos from above, Cliff Ton, don't suppose you have anything with Mapperley/Woodthorpe/Carlton ?

Would be good to see my old haunts, homes etc.

Also on the photo you can just make out the Nottingham Suburban railway going off on the right. Is that a tram at the road junction?

I'd say that's a tram......and what looks like a single-deck bus further behind.

This is as much as you can see of the Suburban railway branching off. Upper line to Daybrook, lower line through Woodthorpe to Sherwood. And it's still a double line - something which didn't last very long. And you can also see the culverted Day Brook going under the embankment (which is still there today)

Unfortunately I'm limited to wherever Britain from Above sent their plane. I'll have another close look to see if those areas appear.

       Somewhere on these photographs is the Grove Hotel. No longer with us. A chap by the name of Mordecai Sherwin was at one time mine host of this establishment. He was  a good cricketer and along with another cricketer of the day named Shacklock, may have been the inspiration for Sherlock Holmes. Putting part of the surnames together. This of course may have nothing to do with the price of fish, and I could quite easily be in la la land. I know nothing about cricket and could write on the back of a postage stamp what vague knowledge I have. He also played in goal for Notts County at some point.

When Mordecai Sherwin died in 1910 he was landlord of the Craven Arms on Woodborough Rd. He'd taken that lease over in 1907.

 

OBITUARY. M. SHERWIN. It is with regret that we announce the death of Mordecai Sherwin at his residence, the Craven Arms, Woodborough Road, Nottingham, shortly before 6 p.m. on Sunday last. For some time his condition had been hopeless.....

07 July 1910

They weren't exactly tactful and sensitive back then, were they ? !
