Introduction

This page is devoted to photos of the places in Nottinghamshire connected with my family history. Some of them can also be seen on other pages of this site, but others are shown only here. Photos will be added from time to time as I have time to scan them and as I acquire more of them.

Each photo is represented here by a small thumbnail. Click on it to see a larger version. The size of the larger version in bytes is given, so you know how big a download job you are starting. I'm sorry a few of the thumbnails are not very clear - it's impossible on this small scale, and by the time they're big enough to see clearly, they're no longer thumbnails! I'm trying to keep the total size of this page, including the thumbnails, reasonably small so it doesn't take users with slow modems too long to download it.

Since Newark was at the time the biggest centre of brewing in the country, this was rather optimistic.
