Last time I saw the NTV1, some years back it was on a green Jag or Daimler.

 

Never heard of Ann Yates, I wonder why the council would sanction a special registration for someone who would only be transient. Was the County Council based at the Council House then and not across the river?

Notts County Council started back in 1889 at The Shire Hall in High Pavement after centuries of administration by the magistrates at Quarter Sessions which dated back to feudal times.

I agree Ben..when on Continental shifts at Boots..i'd stroll through the square at 4:am.

Had a great chat & two smokes with an Army bloke..Katy the ambulance from the film Ice Cold In Alex was on display..he coughed his guts up with my Capstans!

Bodega is still open - but not as you knew it! Certainly not my scene but you may be more of a swinger than me! :biggrin:

I'm one of those who intensely dislike the vandalism perpetrated on Slab Square, particularly the 'Weeing Wall', which bears no relationship to its surroundings in scale, purpose or materials, and which meant the destruction of a far more useful 'weeing facility'!

 

What I want to know, though, is has anyone improved it by the addition of Fairy Liquid, as regularly happened with its predecessors?

Those uniforms have a sort of American/Canadian look, but the headwear is unfamiliar. Polish maybe?  Military uniform not my world.

 

I wonder  how many of those unfortunates survived 'till 1945 ?     

Or even to the end of June '44...……..

Those are American Paratroopers. Note the trousers tucked into the boots.
