Hi,

does anyone have a street map of the area around the school from the 1950's that they could scan in. Perhaps bounded by Slab Square, the Castle, Wilford Road, the Trent.

Best wishes Alison

And how could I have forgotten the 36?? similar route to the 41, to Haydn Road, where we lived when we were first married.

Don't forget the 41 which meandered its way from Cinderhill to Trent Bridge via Old Basford, Nottingham Road/Sherwood Rise, Mansfield Road, Parliament Street to the Square and then by the 43 route to Trent Bridge.
As a Meadows Mundellan I didn't have to use any of the "trackless" routes - but I used to see them humming along Arkwright Street (41 and 43), London Road (the 45) and Wilford Road (40 and 47)

Brilliant! Especially for me because I lived at Thorneywood, so could go to school all the way on a 40 or 47 if I so wished. Of course, I usually took the simpler (non hilly) option of going into town and catching the 43. I could also get the 45 at the Ice Stadium, and the 39 up Carlton Road and walk home (up another slope) The 44 took me to Aunt Flo's, and often on the way back smelled strongly of Basford Gasworks. Does that cover them all?
