For those accessing the newspaper archives I have just flicked through 19th century issues of "The Illustrated London News" and there are quite a few adverts there for Coventry firms. In addition there are some articles about Coventry with a few drawings and I spotted a picture of Coventry volunteer fire brigade about 1860 I believe. Further investigation may find more gems.

Some images from the ILN have appeared on eBay. I've been tempted to sign up to the newspaper archive to search it for more. Annoyingly, many of the Coventry newspaper images are poor but there are some real gems.

The advert for Ida Wallworth furrier!! She was my maternal grandma. I remember playing in her shop aged about 4 yrs with my brother outside in his pram. It was located on the slope going down from Jordan Well on the right hand side, under where the ring road flyover is now and the university car park.
