My new favourite Broadgate image as it mixes present day with pre-blitz and completely defines the line of Broadgate down to Cross Cheaping with the bank being in-situ. Must be 1930's - my only query is where did they take it from?!? Unless its a very early drone-shot Big grin Click on your right-hand mouse and 'open image in new tab' to see it in full-sized glory Thumbs up Edited by member, 10th Oct 2017 4:55 pm

Here's another new one to me - 1930's and an interesting image looking south.

There were so many of those hanging clocks around the city Kaga, I wonder if they all showed the same time. Something I never thought about when living in Coventry. Come to think of it I have learned more about the city since visiting the Forum.

Thanks again MR. I would be very disappointed if the powers that be ever saw fit to demolish that most memorable part of Coventry - it would be a sin.

NeilsYard, your picture on 425 is now haunting me. I keep going back to it. It's over 80 years since I was in among those people, they were all older and bigger than me, never a coloured face or a different tongue to me, never knew what shops were what, but I do remember that picture, it was there most days of the week, strange-uncanny- mind-boggling, and stands out as the Broadgate I once knew.

NeilsYard, it's that Keep Left sign that's bugging me, I would have placed that at a later date, but there you go, it's there.

I tend to agree with Kaga. The Ford van to the right of the picture was not introduced until 1940. It is not a wartime photograph because the car and vans do not have blackout shields on their lights nor white paint on the bumpers and wing edges. I would therefore guess at late 40's. If anyone needs to study pictures of old Ford cars and vans look at the Ford Sidevalve Owners Club website.

Can't be late 40s, Not Local - it had been blitzed in 1940! Oh my
