Down Clumber Street.

Recommended Posts

One of the most prized areas to have a shop today...the rent & rates are costly..part of the so called Council dubbed 'Golden Mile'.

I don't recall the Kardomah being here..wasn't born yet.

Now a sports emporium- The Pepper

Mill cafe was on the same side..up an alley opposite Evans Ladieswear..trendy coffee and quiche.2c5a6e087bb937e97d6022bd8ad91600--nottinnottingham-clumber-street-c1950_n50301.jColmans Yard is on the right.

Nice to see W H May  I recall getting my engagement ring from there also my mum had hers from there, mum and dad married n 1936 just goe's to show. My ring cost £23 00 and it had a diamond in it, not quite like Liz Taylor's diamond ring though, but Diamonds are forever even if it's only a chipping.

I remember the Stilton sandwiches at the Old Corner Pin but I thought those at The Bell were better.

I have some great memories of Clumber Street.

Near to the alley where the Pepper Mill was located there was a small, very olde worlde jewellers with an upstairs where you could buy all sorts of jewellery bits and bobs and watch parts. A woman worked there who could strip down and reassemble a watch in about ten minutes. I think a lot of so-called watch repair businesses took their work there for her to do for them.

Nan Kok - yes! had lots of 2/- (then half-crown, then five bob) lunches there. I was introduced to the jam fritter there. A complete abomination but luckily I was well into enjoying Chinese food before that so it didn't put me off entirely. (For anyone that doesn't know, a jam fritter is a normal bread and jam sandwich dipped in batter and deep-fried).

I find it incredible that so many people still buy chewing gum but even more so that so many of them are so filthy. When and why did this disgusting habit start?

Mind you, what on earth has been deposited in that bench? Don't think I'd sit on it.
