The photo is actually a couple of years old. But things haven't got any better.

 

Back to the Guildhall........earlier this year I was poking around in the back yard there, and this is just inside the entrance on North Sherwood Street.

First time I was there, this old notice was on one of those blue doors. On a later visit, it had gone; souvenir hunters out already.

Only one visitation there for me, but I've no recollection of what the vehicle was. Blurred vision !  LOL

Mine was the result of an inconsiderate island jumping out in front of me, and confusing me after the odd beer or two.

I spent some time working in a "glass" building. Hated it. Only a few years old, leaks like hell when it rains, perishing cold in winter, stifling in summer (no air con). Couple of years ago, a large section of glass fell into the communal area of the building. It was pure chance that no one was killed or seriously injured but, of course, it meant the whole structure was suspect. Waste of money. Let's go back to wattle and daub. It's warmer, environmentally friendly, tons cheaper and, most important of all, I like it!  :rolleyes:

I used to work for Healey and Smith Solicitors in the late 60's and regularly attended court - the Guildhall brings back memories.....

Nottingham Guildhall my Grandad passed away just before I was born, but my claim to fame is that he had a heart attack and died on The steps of the Guildhall. Thought there might have been a Plaque some where near the steps. Have looked but can't see one.
