At first I thought motorbikes till I realised I was getting confused with Francis Barnett.  But Lea Francis was a car manufacturer.

Derby Rd.Lenton 1964.68557.1.640.640.UNPAD.jpgMust have been an Albion Depot around these parts.

Was the Parkside/ Hillside Club down behind that Ford?64310.1.640.640.UNPAD.jpg1958, St.James's Street..i am wondering if this the upper section before Maid Marian Way divided it?

Were Westons based on Glasshouse st?

Memories, I worked in this area for 25 years.

Top pic includes, going north far side of the road, a long-boot Austin 105 in 2 tone colour.

Bottom pic has a bus coming towards the camera (centre of pic) I guess this is one of the remaining older AEC Regent 1 that the corporation still had. (I'm in a bus mood today).

When my Grandfather married my Grandmother  and they moved from East Yorkshire to Nottingham his address was Russell Street. This was where they lived before they moved to live in Sneinton. I have found Russell Street  on the map. My mother's cousin said that this was a street full of lodging houses in the early 1900 s . I am sure that Nottstalgians will know lots about Russell Street.

Good question Roger..this seems apt to post this picture.

Simply described 'Carrington St/ Broad Marsh 1950s'68965.1.640.640.UNPAD.jpgso here's a few queries: is that the Tower Pub?

Is that Tudor Photograhic Studio?

And Mellors was surely a young 'un?

Whats a funfair wheel doing  there?

Is it Nottm?

Answers on a postcard please...

I think the above picture is indeed Broad Marsh
I do believe some sort of "fun fair" was held there during the war

Thanks Andy, got me thinking about Tudor photographic...based in Eastwood.64743.1.640.640.UNPAD.jpgThis is the slowly disappearing Cutts Factory on North Sherwood St. This was just below Ye Olde Hole In The Wall pub. 1965 this is dated..another car park for years...i do recall a fence of house and interior doors used along here as a screen.

We used it as a cut-through to Dryden Street.wollaton_street.jpgThis pub was mentioned last week. The Rutland Arms i think it was called before The Tap n Tumbler.My mates Dad ran this after a spell in The Mansfield Arms...Parliament Terrace to the right.63386.1.640.640.UNPAD.jpgNBL might recall Franks place..here on Convent Street.

The generating plant in the distance can just be seen.

68546.1.280.99999.unpad.jpgThe small shop era. I think Walkers ran the Post Office..did Halls end up specialising in locks? Early 1960's with a bedford van going down Derby Rd.
