IT is usual, after the disappearance of objects of charm and interest, to lament the sad fact that they have become only a memory, and that no artistic record had been taken before it was too late. Nottingham may be congratulated that Mr. T. W. Hammond with remarkable intuition, coupled with a love that was in itself beautiful, has placed on record such a comprehensive and artistic series of subjects which have now for the most part disappeared. His unerring choice of what was worth recording, and the quite unusual technical ability which distinguishes his work, make this collection a priceless possession to lovers of old Nottingham.
