same here Caz, I can only vaguely remember it, and I only lived a mere 500 or so yards away.

but check out the road plaques, they say .. London road / Kirk wight street east.

and that being the case, Arkwright school was a mere 10 yards opposite!

the question is: if it wasn't the Sir John that stood on that corner, can you remember what did? huh.gif

 

THE PUB WAS THE SIR JOHN FRANKLIN AND NEXT DOOR TO IT WAS IVY MITCHELLS SWEET SHOP OPPOSITE THE SCHOOL, SHE WAS MY AUNT AND WAS OPEN ALL HOURS AND MADE HER MONEY WHEN NOTTS COUNTY WAS PLAYING AT HOME. ALL THE FANS WOULD COME IN FOR THEIR FAGS AND A QUARTER OF BULLSEYES OR A PKT OF BARNIPS. POO BEAR KNOWS ALL ABOUT THE LATTER - HAPPY DAYS WISH THEY WOULD COME BACK

There was a pub at the corner of Kirke-White Street East and London Road years back, anyone recall it's name. I think it was a Home Ales pub too..

John

 

Finally came to me Sir John Franklin?

And there's more (from 2 up) while we where sat on the front, outside the Rose & Crown last night, a couple joined us, they were eating & ordered "sizzling steaks" only this steak would not be sizzling, because the iron skillets are not allowed when eating outside, Greenking health & safety, when the meal arrived on a plate, it was missing the fried onions, that to was due to health & safety :crazy:  glad I refuse to eat after 6pm.
