Nottingham man Dr Tony Shaw was kind enough to allow me to use some images from his blog recently ( see A New Year, A New Approach, 22 January 2012 at http://webdub.blogspot.com ).
That being the case, as a gesture of appreciation, I`d like to give a quick plug to his blog, which you can find at http://tonyshaw3.blogspot.com .
Dr Shaw has posted a number of pieces on the history of Nottingham, the most recent being Woman Writers of Nottingham (10 January 2012) and The Old General in Nottingham General Cemetery ( 14 January 2012).
He is the author of Windmills of Nottinghamshire, Windmill Wood and Hidden Nottinghamshire.
Interestingly, he has noticed the blue plaque at Weaver`s Wine Merchants, which I myself had consistently overlooked, despite often meeting my wife outside that very shop in years gone by. To find out more about said plaque, you`ll just have to visit his blog !
