Lenton Photographic Queries

A Nottingham Corporation tramcar with a No.6 on it and the destination given as Lenton - how could we resist including this photograph on the website. A cursory glance would suggest that the tram is on Castle Boulevard on its way into the city centre. However when you look more closely the buildings just visible in the background don't quite marry up with what we would expect to see on Castle Boulevard in the 1920s. The No.6 route went from Radford through Lenton to the city centre and then out along the St Ann's Well Road. We suspect that the tram was actually somewhere in the St. Ann's area when it was photographed. However our knowledge of that part of the city is pretty sketchy. What do others think?
