Graham Greene in Nottingham

The plaque on the Express Offices, Upper Parliament Street, Nottingham, tells most of the story:

'Commemorating the Centenary of Cinema 1996
Screenwriter – Film Critic – Novelist
Apprentist Sub-Editor The Journal 1926
"I have happy memories of this
bizarre old building...
In association with the British Film Institute'.

And here is the 'bizarre old building', which is now closed and looks a little forlorn.

There was an informative Facebook site devoted to Graham Greene in Nottingham but it migrated, although Greene's address at All Saints Terrace, Nottingham models for his future novels, and his conversion to Roman Catholicism, among other things, are briefly mentioned via a link from Facebook.
