This fascinating volume by well known local author and photographer Douglas Whitworth takes a nostalgic look back at his home town of Nottingham, focussing on the thirty years after the end of WW2.
This was a time of change for the city, when many historic properties disappeared to be replaced by Maid Marian Way and the Victoria and Broadmarsh shopping centres. Douglas Whitworth captures the changing scene – old streets, their demolition, and the new buildings arising in their place. There are images of shops and businesses, and of leisure and entertainment, including Goose Fair.
This fine collection of photographs will delight anyone who lived in Nottingham in the late 1940s, ’50s, ’60s and early ’70s while anyone who moved here more recently will be amazed at the dramatic physical and social changes that the city has seen. 144pp
