Nope, he and his friend George Osborne would be better suited to Gibbet Hill. I'd even get on my scooter to go and watch.
How I agree with you, pixrobin! Congratulations too on the photos. So clear at close quarters. Edited by member, 10th Apr 2017 5:57 pm

War wounds? Oh my I hadn't realised just how many marks there are on the walls of The Council House - this is just one small area

Very observant of you MR. I have a feeling you may have disturbed a hornet's nest. I wonder how many more older buildings in Coventry have the same apart from the wounds on the old cathedral.

Yes, looking at the Council House and then Herberts I know which I prefer. What say you?

I like them both. The building between them seems oddly small and makes a poor link between the two buildings, in my opinion, and the East End of the Herbert has been ruined by Coventry University's new building. The whole street is a disjointed. The Herbert has potential for a decent public space outside it, but is underused, like most of Coventry's squares. The Town hall is nothing special. A fairly modest Mock Tudor building that fitted in at the time due its location. (And it seems a little awkwardly positioned as well). You are allowed to like old and new buildings, you know. The post-war architects moved away from copying medieval buildings and had new materials and new technology to use, not to mention lack of finances and shortages of materials.
