Former farmhouse seen in old photo

editorial image

As with many photos from years gone by, there are sadly only a few details to accompany this picture.

What we do know is that it is of Grange Farm in Ilkeston in 1925. The building was demolished in 1949.

A family can be seen standing in front of the house, dressed in attire that would have been in fashion at the time.

The picture comes from one our regular contributor’s collections. All of the pictures this week were kindly sent to us byTony Leivers.

He has a keen interest in Ilkeston’s past and anyone with information can contact him at
