About this image
This location was used in Alan Sillitoe's book (1958) Saturday Night and Sunday Morning'. Alan Sillitoe's family lived off Salisbury Street and he drew on his own experiences of life in Nottingham for the story. His main character, Arthur Seaton, worked at Raleigh's factory opposite. The book was made into a film (1960), and Karel Reisz, the film's director used many parts of Nottingham throughout to add realism to the film.
