New one circulating on FB currently - In colour it makes it even more staggering they decided these should go. Sad

Recently dawned on me that the image in my post No.48 of Lansdowne Place (the name to the terrace as it faced Warwick Road) - looks similar in style to the row of houses that still lie on Coundon Road by Bablake - link

Utilising Britain from Above, quite a clear 1953 image of the rear of the terrace, gardens and surroundings.

NeilsYard, your post 61. There was an hotel / guesthouse in the middle of that row, about where the guy is at the side of that van. I stayed there a couple of nights, my room looked straight down the park. A friend was going to take me to the races, he joined me at the breakfast table, had a cup of tea out of my pot, then told the owner I was a big gambler. The owner then put all sorts of percentages on my 'bill', including the cup of tea my friend drank. I think I posted this on some other thread. But yes they were very large rooms with high ceilings. This was 54/55 time. One minute from the station.

The Towers, Warwick Rd and Stoneleigh Terrace. During WW2 my grandmother had to work or take in lodgers, she was a filing clerk at The Towers. Edited by member, 4th Jun 2019 1:30 pm

The Towers being part of Stoneleigh Terrace were all part of James Murray's work as has been mentioned on the thread on here. I have always found the Towers part of particular interest though as it bears a resemblance to one of my favourite 'lost' buildings that were not actually in Coventry. Harrington House was a gothic mansion in Leamington and designed by EW Pugin - who Murray was partnered to for a period. They must have taken inspiration from each other (as this was way before The Adams Family! Big grin ) Believe it or not this was pulled down in 1967 to build the Royal Spa Centre Oh my Edited by member, 4th Jun 2019 2:08 pm
