Derby evening telegraph 1950-2000
Bracken Wilkinson commented
It is nice to return back to Derby once in a while even through photographs.
We are both from Derby, Teresa being born and raised in Melbourne, my self born in the Queen Mary maternitry home and being raised in Allestree until we married then lived in Melbourne.
Just seeing the changes that have occured since we left Derby in 1993 is a treat of what to expect when we return home to visit our families who still live in Melbourne and Allestree, this is just another way of keeping up to date with Derby without being there.
Keep up the good work
A fantastic site, brought back a lot of memories. I left Derby in 1975 to join the Army. I returned for about 18 months in 1988. I've been in Australia since 1990.
I enjoyed the whole site but mainly the Darley Abbey part, it brought back memories of my childhood, sledging down the "Humpy Dumpty" hill at Darley Park and the Chester Green area where I used to live, New Chester Street which is, I last heard, a car park now. My parents are now living in the St Mary's Wharf road area.
Yes lots of good memories of Derby.
Thankyou for a wonderful site to show my daughter. Living in Australia the oldest building she's seen is about 80 years old. The pictures of the old Tudor building in the City centre and the rest of Victoria Street and the
Morledge for example has brought home to her just how old my home town is. And now she can understand when I carry on about the good old days.
It's amazing how much it's changed. Well done, an excellent site Once again thankyou.
Kevin, Lita and Kristie Lynch
found your website when I was looking for pictures of Derby to show someone how bad it looks.
I stumbled on your website and was very impressed by your pictures, you make Derby look really amazing.
The Derby Tourist Authority really should use your pictures for promotional pieces. I hope you can make a career from photography because you are much more talented than the photography student from Derby uni I lived with and he got a first.
So keep up the good work and good luck for the future.
Your pictures made me quite proud to live in Derby!
I left Derby in 1977 and friends told me I wouldn't know the place anymore. How right they were.
I really appreciate the photos of the Brunswick Inn as I lived there in the late 50's. It hasn't changed much at all from the outside.
I would like to see some more photos of Ashbourne Road area as I worked at Burrows & Sturgess and also Kays (Derby) Ltd. I lived in Stepping Lane for a few years. Burrows & Sturgess was next to Ashgate School and Kays was on the corner of Slater Avenue and Ashbourne Rd. My mum and dad used to keep a grocery shop on Uttoxeter Old Rd. next to the Earl Grey pub after we left the Brunswick Inn.
What memories your photos bring back.
Keep up the good work.
This website is absolutely brilliant, many memories have you have stirred!
I have been reading someones comments regarding the flower beds on Normanton Rec., I too have photographs of the teddy bears picnic and also of a crocodile! photographs of the Derby River Gardens (1963) how splendid it was then. (the lily pond was stunning)
