D.H. Lawrence at Haywoods, The Nottingham Lace Market by Stanley Chapman

So much has been written about the early life of D.H. Lawrence that it must be easy to suppose that there is nothing else to say. There is however one short period that has been neglected. When Lawrence left Nottingham High School in July 1901 he secured work as a clerk with J.S. Haywood, a firm of hosiery manufacturers in Castle Gate, Nottingham, and was employed there for three months or so, when illness compelled him to leave.
