Barlborough High Street 1909

The small white cottage to the right of the picture stood by Blacksmiths yard.  The other small cottages have also gone now and the village green and Ruthyn Avenue stand in their place.
Rose cottage is still here but was then called Ivy Cottage.
The Royal Oak pub stands in the background.
Thomsons Stores stood where the Post Office is now, there are vinegar barrels outside of the old store maybe awaiting collection.

This photograph was taken in Widdowson's Quarry Field on Clowne Road.
