I am sure Lake Street Gym was in the former corner shop part of "Nottingham Scientific Exchange"?

A nice mix of clean brickwork and some superb looking quality paving...

Both features seemingly becoming 'lost arts' today.

Cheers

It used to be further along where the printers is now. What was the pub on Lake street, the Marquis?

The electrician’s shop was on the corner of the ground floor with the gym on the second and third floors. You entered the gym through that (now) red door. It was all free weights – you even had to load up the lat machine. The showers either didn’t work or delivered only cold water. Further along Lake Street was a grocer’s store where we used to buy a pint of milk to swig while we trained. The gym smelt of sweat and milk. I can smell it now. Happy days.

Denshaw, I can remember Pete Brownhill.

Never knew his last name for sure but thought it was Miller, small short blonde hair great dancer. Worked on the bins for a time, think he lived Woodborough Rd or St Anns area during the 60's & 70's. Not married when I knew him but went out with a friend of my wifes for a short time. I can vaguely remember a great bank holiday weekend at Skegness packed with mods & rockers.

Is Jan still about? Great fella, last saw him some years ago at the Elwes.
