The Missing Plaque

A plaque commemorating Graham Greene’s brief time working in the city as a journalist in 1925-26 has gone missing – or rather has been deliberately removed to make way for a smart new brass one marking the renovation of the offices where he was employed – Express Buildings in Upper Parliament Street. Read this interesting little feature by going to the Nottingham Post website and simply entering ‘Graham Greene’ in the search box in the top right-hand corner.

Let’s hope the plaque is safe, languishing in some dusty basement and will be found soon – at least The Nottingham Post is on the case. Typically, Greene had mixed feelings about his time in the city but it did provide the setting, ‘Nottwich’, for his 1936 novel A Gun for Sale.
