Pete Dawson is the son of Ronald Arthur Dawson who was born at 7 Lord Haddon Road, Ilkeston on October 20th 1912.
He has kindly contributed a selection of material from his family archive which I have included in this section.
My sincere thanks go to him.
And he is not to blame for the appearance or layout of the material, or any errors that might have crept in !!
We start at the Canal Side, down Awsworth Road.
