"I miss getting my milk off the doorstep, I miss the glass bottles and putting them back on the doorstep for the milkman.. I miss having to shake them to mix the cream back in and I even miss the blue tits (birds) who would do this!"
Red Lion Street area, Kirk's Yard, Nottingham, 1919. All demolished in the late 1920's-early 30's and replaced by some of the first purpose built council houses. Narrow Marsh lay beneath the cliff of the Lace Market, seen here in the background. The area was notorious for slum dwellings and outbreaks of cholera and other diseases. The houses on the left show frame-knitters windows. The timber-frame house, 'Marsh Farm' may be Tudor, with a marvellous display of repairs and patching.
