Old Trent Street


OLD TRENT STREET formed a well-known, thoroughfare from Leen Side and the adjoining locality of Narrow Marsh to the Midland and Great Northern stations at one period, on each side of the street rows of humbly-built shops doing brisk little businesses in their several ways. This portion, however, was destined for demolition at the incursion of the Great Central Railway into the city, and where at one time existed windows, displaying various wares to lure passers-by to step in and purchase, now stand massive blue-brick arches, over which the '"iron-horse" speeds in divers ways.
