579bea2aecbbed40967ce3b74cff57e1.jpgThere was a time when this crowd organised your travel documents to get you 'passport'.

Especially if you were doing the Grand Tour. This is Clumber Street , Nottm.

Been researching a premises ...going back 150 years- at the same retail address..very interesting..what names traded there.
