Uni students were on old photo

WITH reference to the Rag Week photo in Memory Lane last week, I would suggest this is Nottingham University students at Mansfield Market Place.

They usually visited Mansfield on a Saturday for stunts and fundraising, including sales of the ‘Chick’ rag magazine which appears to be shown, being held by two ladies.

There also seem to be two Uni scarves visible. As a child around this time I would occasionally go to work with my mother above the shops overlooking the market, sitting in the window on improvised seating made from work materials (rug production) eating sweets from nearby Thorntons, spending many a happy hour people-watching.
