    I lived on the top deck of Robert Adam Crescent, Hulme Chris, Rich, Giny were along the way at 536. I got my hi-fi robbed when the smackheads from below managed to jemmy the kitchen window open. Ray from next door said he heard something and came out with his stick, but didn't realise they were already in. Happy days? Great contribution from Kelzo. Respect for remembering so much stuff! It all comes flooding back on this site, innit. Ah, the Eagle. I remember watching Liverpool fans riot in Heysel stadium, live on the Eagle TV screen. That was surreal. Marlene. The Spinners. I played a lot of pool. The PSV was awesome for many years. Who the hell let them pull it down? (The Council, that's who.) It wasn't all good in the crescents. But there was a special spirit in spite of the rubbish infrastructure. That's all for now. Cheers,

    Came across this photo in Picture the Past and reminded me of something which disappeared without anyone noticing it had gone.
    In the 70s there were several Jeff's Fashion Centres around Nottingham - in the days when you had to wear flares, wide lapels and platform shoes. Anybody who was in their teens/early 20s in the 1970s (a lot of Nottstalgia viewers) must've bought something from a Jeff's shop
