Old Video of Unidentified Location.

Can anyone identify the location of the old footage shown in this You Tube video. We think it is of old Nottingham, but we need some clarification. The old footage is Victorian/Edwardian and is taken from the top of an old tram. CAN ANYONE HELP?



About nottinghamhiddenhistoryteam

Originally formed in 1965 to try to save or at least record before destruction the cave sites continually discovered during the major redevelopment of the City that took place in Nottingham in the 1960′s. Almost every day new sites were unearthed and destroyed before anyone was notified; last thing they wanted was someone telling them to stop what they were doing; TIME is MONEY. The word HIDDEN in the Team’s title is because a lot of what was being invisibly lost in the redevelopment was our early history in the caves, they are under most, if now all, of Nottingham. In the 80’s and 90’s the Team conducted with the help of Dr Robert Morrell and Syd Henley, research and work on Nottingham’s history, folklore and local archaeology. The Team published quarterly magazines on their findings. The Team lapsed for a few years after the death of Paul Nix who was the team leader for thirty plus years. The Team has reformed and is now back working on Nottingham local history. On this blog you will find a series of history, folklore and archaeological related articles and information. Most of the material published will be specifically related to Nottingham/shire local history.

    Could this unidentified video be in hyson green going along gregory boulevard towards manfiel rd. At 26 seconds into video a buildong on the left hand side rings a bell. Feels familiar. And later in video is some sort of misic hallwhich was also on gregory boulevard. Hope this helps. Brilliant footage.

    • Hi,

      The video has proved quite a mystery. It could be like you have suggested Gregory Boulevard towards Mansfield Road. We have looked at old pictures of Mansfield Road and parts of the video do look very similar to that area.

      Glad you liked the video, cheers.

    The Music Sign reads: Alfred Phillips Music (Pianos). A bit of research suggests that this shop was in Kilburn. Search in google for Alfred Phillips Music Shop and at the top of the list is kilburnhistory blogspot.
    This maybe your answer.
