Nottinghamshire Live: See these lovely old photos of Nottingham which feature on city library’s new website. “Photographs of old Nottingham never fail to fascinate. They reveal the way some things have changed … and some have stayed the same. They show a time when people had less, but always looked happy to pose for the camera. They record the steps of progress in fashion, housing, transport, education and occupation. Now, a new website hosting thousands of old Nottingham photographs has opened online, a century after the city’s photographic collection was established, giving people instant access to all manner of historic images capturing our rich social heritage.” Even if you don’t want to go to the photo collection, read the article. Whoever chose the photos to include with it did a great job. I did mention this collection at the beginning of November, but I’m mentioning it again because it’s completely launched and the photos are that good.
