My Dad is on that Elastic Yarns photo, but as I sent it to the Lenton Times for their website, no doubt they got it from that

Why was it that until fairly recent times, Castle Boulevard had a disproportionate number of petrol stations and car dealers ?

I always wondered that. Also more recently, tyre and exhaust centres.

I bet they had to wait a long time to get the picture of the bikes on that 

cycle lane.

It was a time-lapse photo.

 

One reason you don't see many cyclists on the Boulevard is because many of them are still bombing along the canal path, where they think everyone should get out of their way.

When Diamond Cable were awarded the Cable network Franchise for Nottingham, they took over the Rediffusion cable network and aquired any liabilities such as maintaining the overhead cables which were in a poor state.

 

Diamond became N.T.L, who then became Virgin Media.

 

I don't beleive Diamond used any of the old Rediffusion underground ducting as it didn't meet their design standards.
