The Old Market Square

Recommended Posts

Sneinton market in its heyday was the place for pots. There was a well known pot man there who had an interesting line of patter and theatrical way of handling and banging the crockery about on a tea chest.

Ian there are some bits of life it is worth keeping to yourself!

Danny may not appreciate the world knowing about his earlier career or the address from which he did business.

Thanks for all the responses. Interesting to hear about Sneinton market pot man. My dad was born in Sneinton.

If anyone is going to the family history event at the NEC on 7th and 8th June the Nottingham Family History Society will be there with lots of books! I believe they used to have a shop in Nottingham.

Any idea of the buildings previous history? To the left of the arch where Queen St meets Parliament St the side of what was maybe the Elite cinema? It was white, almost looked like marble, i remember a statue high up on the wall.
