Come now Spot, you cannot expect me to compromise the virtue and honour of a lady?

In July this year,I had the enormous pleasure and privilege of escorting one of the most lovely(some would argue the most lovely) girl from my year around the almost identical sites shown on the photographs of Bob W.
We met in the Memorial Gardens compared families,friends,and life histories. It was absolute bliss! Something I never could have achieved in my wildest dreams at school. Then ,would not have believed it -there was our exact walk recorded on film by Bob W ! Little did we know that blissful meeting (for me anyway!) had been recorded and published on the web page. The only thing missing were the two malefactors .Probably Bob has the pictures to show to our respective spouses!
Seriously though it was amazing to witness the route of our walk . I at least pondered how the Education department could have knocked down such a magnificent Victorian edifice surrounded by acres of unused playing fields,with unsurpassed views of the river,purpose built science labs.,and masses of land closeby to expand. What could a posh public school have achieved with such a building,and more so the state system.There is now the embryo school in the church next door,-with a small amount of thought and a lot of effort I am sure
the school could have been preserved and improved or maybe there was not enough finance available to have a second `High school' in Nottingham. I cannot think of a better buiding or location for a school in Nottingham. Obviously the developers thought so too! With my very devious mind I often ponder the decision making process that resulted in that edifice being eliminated,( unlike the decision to wipe out the only sure way of the working,and middle classes to progress,via the grammar school route, which in my opinion was pure vandalism).
Anyway ,Bob,well done! Thanks for some wonderful photographs.

Bob,
I was before your time but I am sure that things had not changed from my time to yours too much. The trip through your slide show was certainly an emotional journey for me and now I yearn to go back there from here in Australia just once again to try and recapture some of those halcyon days of my youth.
Thank you for facilitating the experience.

Thanks Bob,
Nice shots and a million memories!
Recently my Dad, who is 90 in a couple of months told me that during WWI, Trent Bridge School, which is were he went, was converted into a hospital for army casualties. And the pavillion in your photo was used as the school. It was so small that the kids attended for about 3 hours each day, in shifts.

For those who no longer live in the area - I recently had a wander around the old school and took a few photographs.

I've posted them as a slideshow on my web page at
