I've traced a relative living at 4 Cook Street, 1861 which I think is next to the Hollybush Inn. I have been looking for photos of this area, the only photo I have seen is the Cook Street Gate and I would also like to know what was College Square?, no 4 was very near to this area (if I've got it correct) xx Smile

That end of Cook street and Silver Street are not well covered. Nobody has come forward with photos and the only images I know of are paintings/drawings. Sydney Bunney's Coventry - impressions of a graceful city (can be bought or borrowed) has paintings of the end of Silver Street and Rood Lane looking towards 4 Cook Street. This picture by Dr Troughton looks along Silver Street and number 4 could be one of those at the end. College Square was an area joining Silver Street and Rood Street. Hope that helps

Nice aerial photos deanocity3. You can clearly see the Hollybush Inn.
