It must be about then, although there's a window of time where the buildings still standing on the left were isolated after the ones in between were demolished, and the final demolition. The distant one on the left was the same one you can just see in the Phipson 1908 picture that Anne posted. Even by that point it had lost the street frontage. So later than 1897 but before 1912.

I wonder if it is the parade of the Barnum and Bailey greatest show on earth, that came to Coventry in October 1898. The show was to be on the Agricultural Show Ground on the Birmingham Road (I have yet to find out where that was, it may be the same place that Buffalo Bill had his show which was where the Alvis site was). The parade was to go through the town including Earl Street. The parade featured a team of 40 horses. Sorry forget that, just read another article that says the parade was cancelled because it rained !! Nothing changes. Edited by member, 12th Mar 2018 5:02 pm

Don't know if anyone has noticed but the space below the listed Architect's offices and the courtyard beyond have been blocked off
