I used to deliver milk to these houses in 1941

I actually laughed when I saw this photo as it brings back memories for me. The end house was my grandma's and I can remember her refusing to move, so her house ended up standing a lot longer than the others. Ha ha, even the nets are still up!

Interesting,so are we to assume that this is the row of houses that stands where SR Payne scrap metal merchants yard is currently situated? The far left hand side where you go up the units is the remains of two or more old houses? This looks to be the very place to me. Anybody?

These houses are where Burger king now stands. My childhood was spent living in the last knocked down house in the middle of the pic (12 Highfield Terrace NG18 1HG) 

The good old years when kids could play, and play we did.

Do you think that picture is Sibthorpe St, I lived on Bradder St don't remember them houses, I do remember  the scrap metal  business  and really a Burger King its miles from the centre  of Mansfield,  to honest I haven't  been there for years.

The last house standing belonged to the Paddon family.

"Lost Mansfield" the headlines are spot on, building and memories no more, we have what you would say unforgettable picture story's. Was there a beer off at the end of the street with stone steps to get to the shop door? How the town has changed and not just in this area, still they say that's progress.
