A rare little view of Greyfriars Llane and Ford's Hospital. This is a very early image and I'm not sure where it comes from. The picture is smaller than a credit card. This sort of etching is often from a book but it was framed some time ago so not part of the current trend for cutting up books with plates and selling them individually. This is similar to a Samuel Lines sketch in Coventry Past and Passing but shows more to the right including a doorway and a window. Not earth shattering but every other image shows a three storey brick building over the space. Edited by member, 8th Jun 2019 11:16 pm

Sorry about the size restriction Neil - there's nothing the moderators can do about it - it's purely down to my design of the forum. A few years ago we got very close to reaching the server-space limit, and if that had happened then the forum would've ground to a halt. Fortunately the space allocation was increased a couple of years ago, giving us hopefully a few more years of uploads before I have to pay double for the next package up in the range. I'll look into adding an "extra large" upload size when I find time, but it'll have to be used sparingly for special pictures, like yours above.

I could be wrong Neil, but I think it was the Royal Mail sorting office!

If you'd like to re-upload this one to try out the new "XL" size Neil, please give it a go! Cheers

Better Rob, cheers, although I don't want to fill up the server capacity. Edited by member, 24th Jun 2019 9:36 am
