Hi all, Wave I believe that the barricade was erected in a jetty at the end of Romford Rd, off Rotherham Rd.

It looks like a window of the Council House. It says "Enquiries re casualties on top floor, re deaths on first floor, so probably November 1940

Yes, Anne, they are viewing the lists of those dead and injured. It says the photo was created 1st Jan 1941, so I would say that was when the photos taken were catalogued - so I think you are spot on Anne Thumbs up

Just to confirm how spot on you are, here's a photo that our Steve took of that very part of the Council House, in Hay Lane, back in 2011.

An image from Pictures of Coventry but one without a location. Now I think I've worked out where it is but it would be nice if someone either knows or could guess the location. I've searched the threads for references to the possible street but there are no links to this image and the few like it. Is it somewhere else?

I can see the road slopes down into the distance, would say not directly in city centre, due to lack of crowd, other pics I've seen normally have people 6 deep.

Deanocity3, that agrees with where I think it is. It also has cobbles and a tram line. None of the images I have of the possible location have exactly the same street furniture but that could be just the wide range in dates between the images.
