      Hello Dawn
      Mansons Fields is at the bottom of Tinsley Road between the Nottingham canal and the Erewash canal, it is shown on OS National Grid Maps 1940s-1960s for Eastwood. You can access a range of historical maps at The National Library of Scotland website https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore

    Hi,

    I’m trying to find information relating to a restaurant in Market Street Nottingham around the year 1900 – 1904. It was run by a family member of mine who I know very little of, his name was Quintino Pelotto, the restaurant was called The Cafe Royal, address 34 Market Street.
    Kelly’s directory shows the restaurant for 1904 but I’d really like to learn when Quintino took over, or maybe bought the place, how long they were in business, anything I can find. I do know they left Nottingham for London, something else I am researching with the help of the Fulham and Hammersmith local authority.
    If anyone can send any information, pictures etc or indeed point me in the right direction to research further I would be extremely grateful. I must add I reside outside the UK and therefore at present rely solely on online documents and help from others.

    Thanks, I look forward to hearing from anyone.
