Does anybody have any memories of a printing company called Hunt & Co, I believe that they were located in Basford. Amongst other things they printed ticket rolls for use in the Bell Punch Ultimate ticket machines used by NCT from the late 1940s onwards.

If memory serves, they were close to the Jn of Haydn Rd and Hucknall Rd.

From the 1930s when it was H.Hunt and Co , Ticket Printers, Hucknall-road (opposite Leonard-avenue). 


There was a court case when they were sued by a paper supplier . Hunts didn't pay for the paper as it was 5 thousands of an inch too thick to go through the Trent Bus Co ticket machines !
