Black Boy Hotel, Long Row, Nottingham. An inn had stood on this sight for many years when it was rebuilt by Fothergill in 1887-88. He later extended and added to the hotel in 1897. With its massive central tower with dark wooden gables and a Bavarian balcony with a dark wood balustrade, it was a major landmark in Nottingham city centre until its demolition in the late 1960s.
Nottingham Express Offices, Upper Parliament Street, Nottingham. These are the newspaper offices, printing works, shops and offices for Messrs. Jevons and Renals, proprietors of the "Nottingham Express" newspaper. Fothergill built them in 1875-76, the corner entrance tower being inspired by the work of the architect Burges. The upper storey was added by Fothergill in 1898-99 to provide the paper with more office space. Graham Greene worked in this building in his youth as a "cub-reporter".
"At the height of their power, the Armstrongs probably succeeded in plundering the English countryside more effectively than any other clan. 'They lie still never a night,' sighed one of the Wardens of the West March..."
