I have been given the loan of some very old postcards, must be about one hundred of them. A few of them of Coventry. The top one I have no date for but the one in colour is postal dated 9 Aug 1905, with a penny red King George stamp. The person sending worked in Cov until 8-30 each evening and would be home in Rugby by 8pm Sat evening. That is a very short weekend for people to commute between such a short distance. It was regular for him as the conversations on the postcards prove. Not all of Cov though.

Don't think there's a separate thread for White Street but found this interesting image on the True Coventrian FB page of White Street and Swanswell Pool war damage. Not seen before and very clear.
