Try some time travel

Loughborough Road old postcardThe Loughborough Road Histories website creates a whole world from its detailed recollections of a few local streets.

From remarkable individuals like Nellie Roberts to the growth and changes in a community, the website’s posts can transport you to a different time.

Its latest, on the history of 102 Loughborough Road, takes the visitor from 1864 to the present day and from a grocer’s and Post Office, through wines and spirits to the present-day chemists.

Or you can check how No 55 has been, among other things, home to a dressmaker, a cheesemonger and an African art gallery.
