Showing Mansfield Laundry branch office. 'Portland Square (aka Lower Green, Swine Green, Engine Green) is believed to be the site of the first village green. Was known as Swine Green when the central pond was used to water livestock. Became known as Engine Green when a building to house the manual Fire Engine was erected on the site. Was named Portland Square by the Local Board in honour of the Duke of Portland's family. It is now a pedestrianised area, with a large sundial' (www.oldnotts.co.uk)
