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

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

Helen, as per my earlier posts, here's that rare property included again next to Ford's, 1941 with damage. The front elevation of 27 and 28 Greyfriars Lane and the access to Court 6, showing evidence of bomb damage (c) Historic England Edited by member, 13th Jan 2020 4:11 pm

A good shot Neil. I was hoping that this building might have had old bones or at least it was in the footprint of the old buildings but as I wrote, the left hand side to about the front of the car (optically) belonged to the property next door. Makes me wonder if the foundation stones were in situ though... It would have dated to the early part of the 1800s. It's good to know the Coventry styles for different periods.
