This is a later view of Nottingham Road taken some time in the 1960s.

Gregorys decorating shop can be seen on the left of the photo on the corner of Victoria Street. Other premises on the left are the Co-op, Sketchleys, Geo. Clift & Son and Shaws.

The road at this time was still relatively free of motor traffic.

The photo was taken by the photographer AW Bourne from Leicester.
