Hello everyone, Beginning my life here with a request. Does anyone have any photographs of the outside of Coundon Road when Coventry Rugby still played there? Living in Coundon, we used to pass it and the clinic, also now gone, on the 5A to Kingsbury Road regularly as a kid, but I can't find any pictures on the internet. Can anyone help, please? Mark

Quick look on Britain from Above - not street level I know but may still be of interest - 1934 -

Yes, thank you NY. A great pic of the ground, the pub with bowling green (now the PDSA) and the coal wharf at Coundon Road. Not bad considering a decade or so earlier there was little there, allotments, fields and a brick works :) As you say, I'm looking for a street level view. Amazing there isn't in an easy to find way.

I have sympathy trying to find images of 'boring' bits of a city. You might find a picture of fans celebrating? The earliest newspaper images are often sport related but tend to be of teams inside the grounds with few features of the background.

This may only be a bit better but you can see the roof of the entrance! 2001 Edited by member, 30th Aug 2019 7:54 pm

I remember, I think it was January 1970 that the Midland Counties were playing the South Africans. I went to the match and had to run the gauntlet of a big protest organised by Peter Hain. It was well advertised and I am sure reporters and cameramen from all sorts of newspapers including the CET would have some incidental shots of the crowds and buildings.
