Morning Helen. I think we've had this one before but cannot find or recall what our thoughts were about it - its allegedly "Children playing in the street behind Holy Trinity 1924" but I cannot picture where? Edited by member, 2nd Dec 2019 10:15 am

Found it Neil! It was this topic.... Street behind Holy Trinity Church. Fortunately, the link given by Foxcote to the Mirrorpix site still works. Thumbs up

The conclusion was that it wasn't Coventry but I will review it, in light of the Mirrorpix photos sometimes being flipped left to right. It's still unlikely to be Coventry as the materials used are wrong for Coventry. Most poor areas of Coventry were either 2 storey timber or 2 to 3 storey brick.

Cheers, Rob - knew I'd seen it before. And thanks, Helen - you are the expert and to me it did not look like any court that we already knew about in terms of style / location etc Edited by member, 2nd Dec 2019 11:23 am

The only place it might be (because of a lack of images of that area and it being the only place with a substantial slope) is the top of Hill Top but I can't find a suitable layout on either the 1850 map or the 1898 map with the photo as presented or flipped which pretty much rules out Coventry.

Looks more like Edinburgh to me - all that granite and slate!

Thumbs up I almost wrote the same thing. That type of stonework says Scotland to me.

I like to visit but also like find things out off this very well informed site but must have missed this one. The oldest rooms in Coventry dating back to the 13th century in Holy Trinity Church in Broadgate.

Prof. Something you don't see these days, glass embedded on the top of walls (presuming that's what it is in Rob's postcard)

It kept 'em out, didn't it, Dream! H&S for you though. Historic England have some excellent close-ups of the bell tower although frustratingly I'm yet to see one of the interior. Edited by member, 4th Mar 2020 9:53 am

Were the bells re-hung in Trinity? If so, they probably would not ring at same time as the cathedral’s bells. Edited by member, 4th Mar 2020 7:50 pm

A winning view that one Neil. Looks as if it's had a few repairs over the years. Thumbs up

From an article on the internet about the bells “After a decade of storage at Taylor's foundry, the bells were sold to Christchurch Cathedral in New Zealand for the value of the metal and then incorporated into their new ring of 12. These bells are currently in storage in New Zealand following the destruction of the Cathedral by an earthquake in February 2011.”
