Middle Marsh, Nottingham, c 1893. Looking north from Sussex Street; Narrow Marsh (later Red Lion Street) to the right. High Pavement Chapel can be seen in the background. This area no longer exists; it was demolished in the 1960s to make way for the Broadmarsh Centre.
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.
Took this a few weeks back, but on my next visit to Nottingham learned that there was a fire in one of these closed down shops and now this area has been blocked off.

It all looks very quiet on August 4 1965, but there were trains still running and regular freights - Copyright John Evans - no unauthorised copying, downloads or use.
