Throwback Thursday: Canning Terrace, Nottingham

Canning Terrace in Nottingham was erected in 1837-1840. Built as almshouses with an entrance into the cemetery behind the building it was named after George Canning, Prime Minister in 1827. Canning has the dubious reputation of having the shortest tenure of any British Prime Minister, dying in office after just 119 days in charge. The Terrace is now modern flats.
