Melton Road in the floods of March 1947
Melton Road in the floods of March 1947
The photo, from the family albums, is taken from the railway bridge, looking towards West Bridgford Baptist Church and the junction with Musters Road (just behind the second lorry). Whether this photo was taken by an adventurous Auntie Gladys, whose writing on the back dates the picture, I don't know. My mother's family lived just south of here, in Manvers Road, which was also flooded.
