The wall at the bottom of the terrace was the wall of the Raleigh Factory, behind was the Frame, Fork and Bar. In the 1950s over a million Bicycles were made per year.
This location was used in Alan Sillitoe's book (1958) and film (1960) 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning'. Alan Sillitoe's family lived off Salisbury Street on this terrace and he drew on his own experiences of life in Nottingham for the story. His main character, Arthur Seaton, worked at the Raleigh factory opposite. Karel Reisz, the film's director used many parts of Nottingham throughout to add realism to the film.
