Beyond Lenton

Our second image of the Boots factory is taken from an undated picture postcard. It gives the viewer a clear impression of the 1930s factory site. Given that there is, as yet, no sign of the sewage works in the bottom of the photograph it probably predates the previous 1939 aerial view. At the top of the photograph are the line of poplar trees planted alongside the main railway line to Derby and beyond it part of the playing fields situated to the south of University Boulevard. On the right of the photograph can be seen part of the Dunkirk Cut - the section of canal which links the Nottingham Canal with the River Trent at Beeston.
