I agree Nottingham needed a playhouse but to have lost these beautiful buildings?

That picture reminds of back in the early 60's when Shipstones were clients of the accountancy firm where I worked. They still had the dray horses and I believe a foal was born around that time. The offices were very traditional and very 'pre-computer'. The books and records were kept in immaculate handwriting. The office floors were highly polished wood block parquet and it was impossible to move at speed without the danger of slipping. At 11a.m everyday a crate of ale was ceremonially brought into the audit room for us! I believe all the staff had a daily ale ration and the draymen would consume a considerable amount on their rounds!

Lizzie, the photo should be near the top of the pile, as I recollect you mentioned it on here a year or so ago.
