  1. Great website. Do you happen to know where the main postal sorting office was in 1951? Also which Night schools would have taught shorthand and typing?

      Hello Corinne, I’m sorry, I don’t know. I moved to Nottingham in 1974, so I can only really comment on the 1970s. As far as I remember, the main sorting office then was on Huntingdon Street and there were quite a few Night School classes teaching shorthand and typing all over Nottingham. I learnt touch typing at Night School in Clarendon College in the 1970s for example, but there were many other options across the city by then. Roy.
