About this image
Looking west to Carlton Road from Walker Street in Sneinton. The Trent Building of Nottingham University can be seen in the background. A row of terraced houses in the centre of the photograph has frameknitter windows on the upper storey. Employees of the stocking and lace industry often worked at home, and either had a frame shop or workshop in the garden or a special room often on the top floor of the house with a special extra wide window to let in the maximum light for the stockinger to work.
