Hello, one of my strong memories of my childhood, apart from the corporation buses, was Goodwins extra self raising flour, I was brought up in Perkins street as a young child and went to wheatley street school and I remember Goodwins vans were blue with their advertisement on the side I think they were Guy vans, I have been trying to find a photo of one even in the national magazine "Vintage Roadscene", but it seems as though those vans have gone forever with no photos anywhere to remember them.

The name GOODWINS was a prominent feature on the roof of the building. Wave

After seeing the photo of the flower mill reminded me when we demolished it I was patrolling the pavement to stop people walking past and a piece of wood from the roof fell and I got hit in the mouth and snapped my 2 front teeth off. so I have dentures so how could I ever forget that place...

Here is a family sepia photo I have which is said to be the Coventry Master Bakers Association float outside Coventry Flour Mill in 1897. Has anyone got any information about this please or where the building was situated. Thanks

I posted this link to a photo of the flour mill in the Wheatley Street School topic. Is it the same one?

The picture looks to have been taken from the western end of Wheatley Street:

Dutchmans map is, of course, showing Robbins & Powers flour mill owned by Pauls of Birkenhead. (Homepride flour) Goodwin Foster Brown was a different company entirely and had ceased milling quite some time before Robbins & Powers.
