Bulwell Hall Estate was known in my youth as " Chinatown , because when the tallyman or weekly collector knocked at the door asking for Mrs ***** the answer was " Shintin "

My ex husbands grandma (work that one out) was a Truswell from Forest side Bulwell. Married a Deller and owned a sweet shop somewhere on forest side/opposite Adelphi cinema and I think Roland was her brother or nephew

I didn't live there, my ex husbands family did. Gladys was his grandma. She moved from the sweet shop to deptford crescent then to Hucknall in the late 90s. She passed away in 2000

If I remember rightly the barber next to Walker and Chapells was Harry Keating. I had many a haircut there. There is a new barber at the other end of the block now, does a good job but charges a bit more than Harry did all those years ago.
