This image shows the Penn Avenue flats in Old Lenton, Nottingham. They were built in 1926 by Jesse Boot for his own employees and local residents whose homes were demolished to make way for Abbey Bridge road. Enlarged you can clearly see the Lenton war memorial and Albert Ball VC Memorial Homes. In the centre above the flats is Holy Trinity Church, Lenton's parish church.
