Hi Iain. It was interesting to read your post about Starley Road. A bit before your time but my great grandparents William and Frances Yardley ran the shop at 43 Starley Road until 1920 when Frances died. I think then it was a general store. William applied for a drinks license but was rejected. He also repaired watches there. My grandfather went to live with them after the loss of his wife and children until he reamarried in 1915. I look forward to more of your reminiscences.

As we haven't got a dedicated Croft Road thread I'm adding this one here as its on the corner of Starley Road. Thanks to Pauline Blower on the CoventryLive Nostalgia FB page - late 60's - and an unusual view of the row of original terraces not too long before they came down.

This thread looks like it started with a request for old photos of Starley Road. Here are circa 1948 photos of the front entrance and back garden of number 11 Starley Road. I was born in the upstairs front bedroom in 1946 Wink - Paul

Here's that same house in Midland Red's picture in post 18, pre-Starley Road re-development and pre-mural! Thanks to Cliff Berwick - Edited by member, 8th May 2019 3:20 pm
