Did there used to be a music shop in Earl Street, opposite the Council House? Or am I dreaming? Roll eyes

There aren't many images of Earl Street, east of the Palace Yard until you get to Much Park Street. However this video (hat tip Midland Red and Coventry Telegraph) shows a fuzzy but face on section that might offer somebody an idea of the area's appearance. Rare 1930s footage The section you can see is just beyond the pale jettied building in the distant right of this photo.

Am I going funny? I could have sworn I put this at the end of other comments that have now vanished. I don't even remember starting a new thread.

Thanks then Cliff Thumbs up At what point does Earl Street 'officially' become Jordan Well? Is it at the Much Park Street junction? Agree I'd love to see more of that area in times past especially where Palace Yard exited on to. There only ever seems to be shots of that looking directly into or out of the yard.

I think it's up to Bayley Lane on the north side and Much Park Street on the south. There's only one decent image of the entrance to Palace Yard that I know of and it's a Bunney painting. It had been Georgianised. It centres on the gateway and there is a window either side on the ground floor and the first floor. Above the gateway there is a fancy window with an arch in the centre. To the left of the gateway there is a door. I was a tad disappointed when I saw it. There's a partial view on the far left a picture of Earl Street taken from St Michaels while they were demolishing the north side of Earl Street to build the Council House.

Mods feel free to move to a more suitable thread as this one could've gone in a number. Not see this one before - courtesy of Getty (please don't sue me!!)

Good picture. As far as I know Getty, Alamy etc. allow these low resolution watermarked free downloads to be used in any respectful way a person wants? They are advertising their companies with the watermarks, so beneficial to them.

For those of you with directories, was there a barber shop at about number 14 Earl Street some time 1850 ish? Please ignore if that's a difficult request.

Good Morning Heathite - are the Directories online or do you have the books yourself? Do they cover the whole of Coventry? I know I can look at the old Census online with Ancestry.co.uk.
