Thanks Prof, much the same as Neil’s photo 114 - where do you get them from? Almost 90 years ago I was first wheeled through those streets. I believe when I was little I was frightened they were going to fall on me but then got to like them. To see those photos today makes me think this was a different timescale, a different lifestyle, but somehow it always seemed warm and friendly, and just a short time after, it all disappeared and Coventry never seemed to recapture the warmth and friendly spirit that those streets held. Maybe it was because I was so young, but like the buildings, my speech did have the Coventry twang that I still have today.

Sorry Neil, I had not recognised or checked that the same scene was loaded earlier!

Yes Kaga, Coventry twang I am sure you retain, but in no way could it be termed 'sing song' (like the Welsh) as one contributor said when he spoke to a Coventrian after the Blitz.

Thanks to Cliff Berwick - terrific but sad image of one of our favourite parts of old Cov going circa 1936. Some great detail here including what was on West Orchard -

Dreamtime, it is a 24, the letters look like KiIMB. There was a fishmonger in Butcher Row called Kimberley, so I would imagine it’s him.

Anne, bless your heart, but I haven't a clue to what you refer to. Is it a post from a few posts ago or was your post meant for someone else. Anyway, I am having a little giggle and thank you!!!!! Smile
