This bunch of lads are members of Hucknall’s Boys Brigade and is believed to date back to 1899.

The picture we featured last week of Holly Place, Bulwell, sparked much interest in the community.

Susan Leonardi, nee Hill, said she was born at 1, Holly Place in March 1951 in what she described as a ‘one up one down cottage that had no running water, just an outside tap, outside loo and no bathroom’.

Linda Smith remembers Holly Place and said her neighbours were Mr & Mrs Arthur Taylor: “I wondered if Mr M Taylor, who sent the photo in, is any relation to them?”
