Guess where......

Recommended Posts

Back in the days when life was a bit quieter...who can spot where this is?

(I know the answer, it's just a bit of trivia). A clue is it's an area which hasn't been mentioned much on this site.

University boulevard....dunkirk island end ??

Spot on. It's surprising that most of the buildings are actually still there; just the road itself which has changed. On today's view, look at the first two buildings on the right which are a bit further down on the old photo. It's just the big three-storey building on the right which has gone.

Seems that bit is actually called Beeston Road

I thought I would revive this thread as somebody might recognise this notorious building, if you guess right post another one.

I can't answer Trogg's question, but thanks to him for reviving this thread.

 

As a result of this, I've repaired the original photo which started the thread back in 2011. It had been blurred by the Photobucket Blackmail Dept.

oops I must have had a senior moment,  I only thought about posting it but thought better of it as it might revive unpleasant memories of one of our Nottstalgins.  Sorry its my age honest.

Thanks for the clearer photo Cliff Ton.

I honestly never saw the writing at the bottom, assume I was correct then!   It was only a guess because I can’t ever remember this seat of learning .......

I would never intentionally do anything to upset you Jill as you are the only person in the world who calls me "young".  You cannot imagine what a boost it gives me, I have no chance of living up to the standards from others coming from Bestwood Estate. lol

I'll forgive you then, young Trogg!  Just don't post any pictures of Irish females who taught maths at that cursed establishment, otherwise I'll never speak to you again!

 

Even Ben would have drawn the line at flirting with her!
