Yes Rosemary - Hertford Street has been well and truly ruined.

Another good photo though for understanding how the past and the present relate. I've been down there but never looked back and realised what I was seeing. Good one Thumbs up

I totally agree, all the character gone, and before anyone says 'what character', if you looked hard enough it was there. Actually I was shocked to see how Hertford St. looks now. Sad

I'm sorry MR but I think your picture misrepresents Hertford Street in its modern form. Too many people in the foreground compared to the original. But, of course, you were taking the picture from the same spot as the original. In its pedestrianised format Hertford Street is no longer the thoroughfare it once was - it is a series of spaces. These pictures taken as still frames from my Go-Pro perhaps demonstrate what I mean.

It'll never be as bad as Hales Street (I hope) with an obscenely gigantic block of flats stuck next to the few remaining antique buildings, that even blocks off the open patch of sky when looking downhill from Butcher Row.

Even in the 60's Hertford Street was always an odd looking street. There were never any shops that would make me want to go down there. If I needed to get to that end of town I would go through the Precinct and Market Way. At least in those days the Precinct appeared planned. The existing street layout around it never quite seemed finished off.

Don't think I have seen this one before, Midland Daily Telegraph offices 18 Hertford Street I believe. Bombed on 15th October 1940 the only day they weren't able to produce a newspaper. Became the Coventry Evening Telegraph in 1941

Yes Roger, the whole thing looks a bit dodgy, would you fancy standing on the top of a crumbling building? Reminds me of Fred Dibnah and his chimneys, Oh my

That has to be older than me that one, judging by the tramlines. Thanks Neil, another pat on the back. Thumbs up
