Hope you did not eat the fungi, it was probably laced with acetate from the Courtaulds plant at the rear of your flat, or sulphur from the Gas Works down the road. Alan H

Hi Gas Centre. In an earlier post you mention a John Atkins taking over a bicycle shop in Far Gosford Street. I went to school with a John Atkins and I am wondering if it is the same person.

John Wright Not sure if it was the same John Atkins you remember from school, I did not go to Windmill Road School but was at Little Heath until I was eleven. Seem to remember he was a well known cyclist when took over the shop from Tom Bromwich, I think he bought a hotel or guesthouse in Wales when he sold the shop. Alan H

Earlsdon had Talbot's at 48 Earlsdon St. from 1923 to 1984. In the post-war years "Jack of Earlsdon" (A.J. Blundell) was at 176 Albany Rd. He was Coventry's agent for Stallard frames. While checking this information, I came across Fretton's at 4 Fretton St and Sherwin's at 104-106 Holbrook Lane.
