It's great on here when there's a mystery photo and it gets solved in seconds Cheers This next one isn't going to be hard I shouldn't think but it's got so many details. Ice Cream Man

Lol Yes a lot of detail but I think there should be a full stop inbetween "eagle" and "street". It is a pic of a "Coventry Eagle" pushbike. Nowhere near Eagle St. The shot is a wide road with tramlines in it, I think this is one for the experts on trams. The actual street scenes are very similar to what Widdrington Rd used to look like but I think no trams ran there. Also, looking at the bus sign it ends (as far as i can make out) "idon" and I can only think of Earlsdon, which it isn't. The LMS truck was first registered in Hertfordshire, the car CVC in Coventry and it looks like a Cov Council bus but again the experts, from the number on the bus, will prob tell you who the driver was on that day. Wink You picked a good one here Foxcote Lol I hall prob be shot down in flames now. Wave

I am so pleased that the photographs on here are proving to be Coventry and not a wasted effort for all of you. Also, so interesting to witness all the details unfolding to confirm the locations Cheers There are loads more on that site, unidentified as yet, I reckon we should check some more out, they are definitely unusual shots and could be useful and anyway, great fun to solve with all the experts out there Smile
