It was in the 1960s that the citizens of Nottingham saw the greatest change in the face of the city in the twentieth century. In the previous decade, the city planners envisaged a dual carriageway which would encircle the centre of Nottingham and they began by building a new highway from Castle Boulevard to Friar Lane. Many slum properties were demolished in the area around Walnut Tree Lane near the castle, but a number of historic buildings were also swept away in the construction of the new road - notably Collin's Almshouses and St Nicholas' Rectory. The construction of the Broad Marsh Shopping Centre, which complimented the Victoria Centre, was equally contentious. In March 1963 the Beatles - then virtually unknown - played with other groups to a half-empty house in the Elizabethan Ballroom in the Co-operative House on Upper Parliament Street. Later the same year their appearance at the Odeon Cinema was a sell-out and the cinema was surrounded by fans eager to see their idols. Douglas Whitworth has published numerous other books on Nottingham for The History Press. Featuring over 200 photographs from archives and local people's collections revealing the Nottingham of yesteryear, this book is guaranteed to be of interest to anyone who has ever lived in or visited this great city.About the Author:
