Station Road, Mansfield, Notts.
The Midland Hotel was built in 1805 as an lunatic asylum for men and it had high walls around it. It was known as Broom House until The Midland Railway Company purchased it in 1862 and converted it into a hotel. It is now a function venue and public house. The red car is facing in the direction of the new bus station 100 metres ahead of it. The entrance into the station, via its booking office, is behind the photographer. In the distance is The Rosemary Centre, a shopping centre, that was originally "Lawn Mills". This mill prepared cotton that was then sent for weaving in Lancashire, which is the damper. The mill was owned by the Cash family.
