Nottingham Miscellany
70th Anniversary of Nottingham Blitz - 8th & 9th May 1941



It was I believe 1951 when I was last in this room and as is often the case, it seemed far smaller than I remembered it.

Some space has been lost to a partitioned off bay at the far end, but the biggest loss I noted was the classic 'Fireman's Pole' which was in the right hand corner.

Yet another victim of 
 'elf n' safety' !

Apparently crews now have to race down a spiral staircase that is far more dangerous.
