While we are at it can we have the Victoria Station & Drury Hill back Too ;)

….  recognising that Victoria Station replaced other buildings which were in central Nottingham in the 1890s, including the grocers shop where my great grandad worked, Thos Furley and Co, Charlotte Street.  I think that company and others affected (including St Stephen's church in Hyson Green) received compensation which contributed towards the costs of relocation.  There is a sign explaining this on St Stephens with reference to 1897.  Thos Furley was relocated to Lower Parliament Street and the new building (now Lloyds Bank) was designed by Watson Fothergill.   (I'm a new member coming to this much later so apologies if I'm going over anything others have raised).

Yes that's it and the Fothergill catalogue explains some of the features on the building eg tea producers (as befits a provisional merchants!)
