Harjit Sahota posing for his photograph on Petersham Street in the early 1970s.  The black van is parked on Grove Road and to its left is the junction with Hungerton Street with Abbey Bridge passing over the top of it.


Peter Holland took this shot of Petersham Street in 1978. The properties all came down in the early 1980s and were later replaced by the present housing development known as Petersham Mews.  In the far distance is the Royal Ordnance factory, over in The Meadows, which is also now no more.


This picture postcard No. 180a in the 'Clumber' series shows a view of the Nottingham Canal.  On the right are the end properties of Petersham Street and to their left the bridge which carries the railway line over the canal.  The postcard was posted to an address in Radford in December 1907.






Photograph by Paul Bexon - December 2007
