1899, June, 1st: To Strelley, Used New Camera to Get View of Squire and Hall

Strelley, June 1st 1899

Today, with new camera on-board, have to go over to Spring Wood in Strelley to select the trees for felling for the Squire.

While, there took the opportunity to try my new Henry Clay 4 x 5 Regular Camera and get a fine view of Strelley Hall, built in 1860. The Squire, Thomas L. K. Edge, can be seen in his gig going to Nottingham. Towards the church the Groom and gardener can be seen.

Another fine view, taken with the new camera, showing the church and a lad on his fathers cart. Returned home for supper and to develop the rest of my exposed plates, a good day.

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.
