Thank you MR. The map is pre decimal money, that's all I know about it. Pity they don't put a publish date on their maps. To me it's a glaring error and quite out of character for that type of business.

Our son bought a 1977 book "The Rover Story" in a National Trust Book Shop last week. Lots of pictures, but I thought this view of the Rover Garage interesting. I don't think I have seen it before and most pictures are looking up the hill towards Broadgate. It is a 1920's picture and the car parked outside is a "Clegg-ype" Rover 14hp model.

Did the Rover Garage many years later become Parkside Garage where I bought my Austin Healey Sprite from in 1967?

No, sir - Parkside Garage was at the bottom of Warwick Road - between the the railway goods yard and Queens Road Thumbs up In 1967, the Rover Garage site had become Benleys, succeeding AD Foulkes

Hello Mr Blue Sky, Wave The Parkside proprietor was Mr Davis. In my growing up years (fifties and sixties) I saw him many times when walking into town from school. Also a point of contact was that my mum supplied the workwear uniforms & overalls for the business from her shop in White Street. Her last motor was from there too, in 1958, a Wolseley 6/80.

Does anyone remember working at Coventry Garage, Holyhead Road, during the 60s and 70s? If so would be pleased to hear from them. I was a mechanic there way back then and wondered if they still lived in Cov. Would like to chat to them.
