Bulwell Was A Nice Town

A Memory of Bulwell

Used to be called 'Coley'. We lived at 50 Bradford St. Bulwell was a great place to live, crime free, friendly people. All the 'cool dudes' hung around the 'Penguin café' none of use could afford a cup of tea, so we would just stand around outside and be 'cool'. Attended Highbury Secondary....Mr North was the Headmaster. Virtually every Street had a pub and a fish and chip shop. I am now 66, retired from the American Army (how things changed after 25 years) as a Command Sergeant's Major (Combat Medic). Would love too hear from old friends.
