A History Of Nottingham
Looming ominously over the city, the stony battlements of Nottingham Castle speak of a long and violent criminal history. Illustrated with more than forty photographs as well as artwork, this selection of true-crime stories provides an introduction to the darker side of Nottinham's past.
It was in the 1960s that the citizens of Nottingham saw the greatest change in the face of the city in the twentieth century. Featuring over 200 photographs from archives and local people's collections revealing the Nottingham of yesteryear, this book is suitable for those who have ever lived in or visited this great city.
Every corner of Nottingham is rich in history, and if the streets could talk they might tell of the people and events they have witnessed. Many ancient secrets have remained untold, such as the purpose of the great Viking `long-house' found beneath the site of a demolished Victorian factory, and who built the ancient mound that once marked the site of the spot where a king of England raised his standard.
The Illustrated History of Nottingham's Suburbs
On 12 February 1977 Nottingham Forest lost 1-2 at home to Luton Town. That night Forest were 8th in the old Second Division. Two years and 107 days later John McGovern carried the European Cup around Munich's Olympic Stadium. It was a rise unprecedented in world - football history and one that has not been matched since and, indeed, now never will be.
