Thanks, Prof. Photos by Charles Hobson - what a coincidence, 'Hobson's Choice', the movie about a shoe maker, was on the TV just the other day (a young John Mills & Charles Laughton).

Yes, Dreamtime, remember the Ager's shoe shop well in Corporation St, though not pre-war in Broadgate.

There are some great images shown here on the Sainsburys Archive site including early images of the stores.

All - take a few moments to enjoy these. I was going to add them separately but there are too many good ones to keep adding. Thanks to my FB friend Cliff Berwick who found them. Some of these have made their way on to the web over time but a few unseen crackers for me. They are part of the LIFE magazine collection taken by one of their photographers Hans Wild in a 'Coventry - One Year on' series. The LIFE site itself is US restricted but Google have now added them to their Arts and Culture Page/App - Coventry Photographed by LIFE 1941 It’s where I found those ones of the old Temperance Hotel on the other threads.

Brilliant Neil, thanks for sharing. Some of the photos of damaged houses, although repetitive, look like they are taken somewhere on the edge of Coventry. Is it possible to ascertain where? It would be good to see 'then and now' comparisons.

Question

You are a gem, Helen, thank you for those. I have to say I love the watercolours. Fantabulous! Thumbs up

No problem mods - there are a few on there we need to identify. I'll go through the ones I think we need and add to relevant threads to uncover when I can.
