THIS photograph is the first of many from Ilkeston man Karl Aldred’s collection.

Over the coming week’s photographs from Karl’s time as the president of the Ilkeston Lions and other local organisations as well as his scrap book of newspaper clippings and pictures from Booth’s Factory.

He also has photographs of his time at the Charnos factory.

This week’s picture shows the Ilkeston Lions in 1980 with the European Cup.

Local businessman Gerald Atkins, who was also a committee member at Nottingham Forest, arranged for the trophy to be at the Lions event.
