 “POST” QUIZ PICTURES More Interesting Details With reference to the Post quiz pictures,  THE OLD HORSE BUS. Mrs. Thompson, of 134, Egypt-road. New Basford, commenting on a recent quiz picture of the Sneinton horsebus, says: “I lived on Trent-road when it was called Thurgarton-street, and I well remember Mr. C. Manfull shop. Across the road was Mr. Lilly’s grocery and P. O., and a few doors below on Trent-road was Mr. Callendine. I also remember quite well St. Christopher’s Church being built. We were the first tenants on Trent-road on that side overlooking the Vicarage . We lived there 17 years, and my father, Mr. A. Barber, was one of the first members of the church at the bottom of the Sneinton-boulevard, and there is a stone in the wall to the memory of my dear mother. We were great friends of Mr. and Mrs. Gregg and also other prominent people of the Trent Ward, as my mother held the position of president and other offices for many years. By the way. the bus used to come up Sneinton-road and round the corner of Trent-road previous to going along the Hermitage, and many a time I have been on and expected to be thrown in the road, but it- was fun and worth it. I may say that Sneinton-dale was worth living down then but. alas, it has all gone now. I look forward to your quiz pictures, and we save them, and ray my husband and I have little guesses where they are,
so keep them up.”

 SNEINTON MEMORIES Revived By “Post” Quiz Picture The appended interesting letters have been forwarded as a result of Saturday’s Post quiz picture. They certainly have revived happy memories. The first is from Mrs. Hockley, 11, Loscoe-terrace, Church-drive, Nottingham: Your quiz picture on Saturday night was a photo of myself, sisters, and brother, taken about 54 or 55 years ago. it is in a field called Hornbuckle. those days, the vicarage at the back was at the end of Thurgarton-street. “The photo was taken one Saturday morning.” The second comes from Mr. H. Birch. Holmeleigh, Hoveringham: Your quiz picture on Saturday it was a treat to see. I had been through the old swing gate times and times before St. Philip's Vicarage was built, in fact it started building before the bricklayers arrived. How the poplar stands out in the old Gipsy field. The Gipsies used to come every year. The footpath leading to the White Houses and Thurgarton-street with the cottages and farm yards, was a pretty spot.  All the farmers were named Shepherd. Sixty to 64 years ago Old Sneinton was very rural. It even had the hunt meet facing the Hollows Your picture was before the L.N.W.R. bridge was built over the Dale. “It is all a pleasant memory.”

Hello
I am new to genealogy and RootsChat so please bear with me.
Your posts are really interesting and packed with information. Absolom is one of my ancestors and this post gives a wonderful description of him. He must have had some wealth. I am wondering who actually wrote it and now I am interested in Beatta. Well, I am interested in it all, especially when I come across a gem like this. Thanks
