  • Wilson and Wards, Mrs ward resided on Nottm. Rd opp Oakham Close. Mr Trotter ran the outfitters, eventually Gordon Cox took it over. I know Gordon. Years ago a butcher from Shirebrook took his pigs around in the back of his Rolls Royce, saying they pay for it they can ride in it. Dorothy Hinton who was a big friend of mine had the Eight Bells, incl. a dress shop. On the Mkt place and cafe bars, a delightful lady who’s son Bill died in his early 40s, I called each week to see her, at Rufford Ave, next to Adela Roscoe the Palais owner who I knew as auntie Dorothy very interesting lady, was the first landlord the site originally the home of Samuel Brunts, the chief bell ringer at st Peters lived there, I believe that’s where it derived its name, Fox’s bakery at the far left bottom side, superb Almond Slices etc, often queuing outside, Mark Wilson

  • Nice photo of Church street. It looks to be around the 1940’s looking at the style of clothing and cars. Willson & Ward on the left hand side of the street were first in Outram street, Sutton-in-Ashfield in early 1920’s and selling boots and shoes. They first appeared on Church street around 1928 and survived until the early 1960’s

  • Looking at the motor vehicles I would think it’s late 50s or very early 60s.

  • I’ve actually found the same photo in a book ‘Mansfield in old postcards’ and it states that it was taken in the 1950’s
