Union Cottages 1891 - 1901
« on: Sunday 08 January 17 10:39 GMT (UK) »
I'm trying to place an address found on both the 1891 and 1901 census for Nottingham: 18 Union Cottages, Union Road. Obviously I can see Union Road on current Google maps but are the cottages still there?

Many thanks

Taking a walk down Union Street (courtesy of Streetview), there's nothing there that we would call a cottage these days and in fact all the buildings on one side of the road are new. I suspect that"Union Cottages" have long gone.

Looking at Union St on a map from around the time you mention, it was built up then so I doubt that the "cottages" were of the roses-around-the-door type!

I googled such as "old photos union road nottingham" or "slum clearance st ann nottingham" and similar. For example

Those images also pointed to the site of another domicile of the family I was studying: Dame Agnes Street - which has now disappeared.
