Surrey UK We emmigrated to Canada in 1965 we lived initialy at 37 North Parade Derby then 57 Chelwood Rd Chellaston nr Shelton Lock Your site has brought me many wonderfull memories of my childhood I used to walk from North Parade to Markeaton Infant School as a child and I wandered all over Darley park playing Later when we moved I used the Derby canal tow path as a shortcut cycling anywhere from Alvaston to Swarkstone to go fishing We used to catch Newts in the abandoned lock at Shelton Lock and play around the old bridge on Sinfin Moore lane at the canal One area that would be good for a before and after picture if you can find the old photos would be Ascott Drive My uncle Wilfred Foyers and my father Harry Reed had a plant on Ascott Drive H F Precise Castings Which they first started in an abandoned army Nissan building I remember as a kid in the 50s walking with my father through a whole neighbourhood of Nissan huts which extended from Ascott Drive to Derby Rd and had been turned from an army base to residences due to the shortage of housing after WW2 This was all levelled around 1960 and the people presumably went to council houses Ascott Drive became predominantly industrial then and the plant expanded I remember walking on a Saturday as a little gaffer with my father across the long footbridge over the railway works yards from the Ascott Drive plant to Derby Rd then over to the baseball field to watch Derby County Play Some of the players at that time were Barrowcliffe Parry Curry Hughes and goalie Mathews not Sir Stanley Thank you for the memories your site brought

  • About Derbyphotos.co.uk - Want to know what this site is all about?
    There are several websites on the Internet relating to Derby and Derbyshire all have their good and bad points I try and make my site stand out from the rest by being different Key points which I stick to are 1 Quick to view So many website fall victim to taking an age to load in pages and photos My site has always been optimised for speed of loading on a dial up modem Presentations which require a lot of bandwidth have their very own dedicated section on the Broadband Enhanced section of DerbyPhotos co uk 2 Easy to navigate around my site By this I mean that it should always be obvious how to get back to the main index of both the website and the sub section of where you are currently looking You should never get lost on my site 3 Unique photo display method Most websites which have photos tend to show their photos as a jpeg image on its own up in the top left of a window and you have to click the browser back button to get back to the thumbnails On my site all images display a separate new window which can be closed simply by clicking anywhere on the image There is no need to use the browser controls This makes for very fast and convenient viewing of the photos which has a natural feel to it 4 Free of pop up advert windows There is nothing more annoying that persistent advert windows opening up at random intervals My site does not have these Please note Sections which are out of my control such as the Message board Search Page and the Jigsaw page may have adverts some of my pages feature adverts by google these help pay for my hosting charges 5 I go out of my way to keep all of my information up to date If pubs change name or buildings are demolished then I update my pages to reflect this If you spot anything wrong on any page simply get in touch and I will update it 6 Everything is on one single website there is no need to visit multiple sites to get different information Both the County and the City are covered on the same domain 7 Beyond normal photography Aside from traditional photos this site also has a wide variety of other types of image Including night time long exposure panoramic 360 degree and Interactive virtual photos Add to this then and now fading photos 8 To be search engine friendly 90 of visitors to my site arrive by Internet search engine results My pages are designed and continuously enhanced to make sure they are seen by all the popular search engines through out the world 9 Free links to local sites I am more than happy to link to any local websites to help promote them I do not charge for this so get in touch 10 Keeping up with technology As computers
