With Ilkeston Charter Fair just around the corner, have a look at this fantastic photograph shared on the Ilson Bygones Facebook site.

The site, set up by Kirk Hallam man Shaun Dolphin, has tapped in to the – literally – thousands of Ilkeston folk interested in nostalgia and the town’s history.

This photograph, posted by Facebook user Robin Hood-UK, shows the fair in full swing in the Market Place many years ago.

Ilkeston’s 761st Charter Fair is officially opened this Thursday.
