Annewiggy. Thank you so much for copying up the BPP advert from 1937. It's a great thing to see. Where did you source it from? I visited Coventry last week and discovered that BPP was established in 1929 and originally was linked with Sunrayn Ltd working out of Edward street factory. Later moving to Quinton with significant expansion. I'm off to bed now but will put up all findings over weekend. It's an exciting and very interesting story :-) Nicola x

The advert was from the Coventry Official Handbook 1937, I was looking for something else and came across the BPP ad.

One is British Pressed Panels Ltd of Quinton Road and the other British Pressed Panels (Sunrayn Ltd) Co, motor panels manufacturers of Edward Street. I wonder if anyone had heard of this second company or knows anything of their history? Feeling a little stumped, so unusual to have two companies of the same name trading in the same town.
Interesting, I used to live in the only house in Edward Street. It was a 2 up, 2 down terrace type house but it was on its own so it was actually detached. You can imagine how cold it was with every room having 3 outside walls. Anyway, the only other building in Edward Street was a warehouse type building used to build and store props for the Belgrade theatre. I therefore assume that this Sunrayn firm were based in that building.

I was there from 1981 to about 1987.
