Recommended Posts

In the picture 1 page back 3 up, the more observant of you would have noticed the bloke down the hole was holding a fag, the lighting of cigarettes is not recommended due to underground gases.

My friend’s Dad was the main contractor working for Westminster Brick Company who built Cranbrook House, and also Walton House on MMW, and in fact also the estate I grew up on in Arnold.  
When they were digging the foundations of Cranbrook House her Dad brought home a human skull, complete with teeth.  My friend took it to school (Haywood) and it was then subsequently stolen from the Biology Lab, later to be found buried by the nearby old railway line.  Someone found it, it was somehow traced back to Haywood School, then to my friend, and the police were knocking on their door, investigating a possible murder!!

A lot of memories of Hockley, Joy Huchinsons shop, mother of actress Sherry Hewson.The Moon cafe, had a mate who worked in Price and Beale outfitters. Jeffs fashion, anyone remember Pigalle club?

Yes, remember the Pigalle! It was originally on Drury Hill and was a bit of a gambling den as well! I remember punters throwing 10 Bob notes on the Roulette table instead of chips! 10 bob would have seen me halfway through my Friday night jaunt in '60s Nottingham!

Remember Drury Hill? I had to do my driving test 3 point turn down there!
