Neils post #57, is this Dovecot House? And is this the same house front facing, Helen F post #55? It seems to me it probably is! Edited by member, 7th Nov 2018 3:57 pm

Yes Prof, I think that was Dovecot House. The two pictures are of the same building. Had it been an earlier reference it could have been the other side of Derby Lane (there is a roof that suggests holes for birds) but that side was demolished for the library. I've found at least one image with a dovecot in the roof - on a yard off Much Park street. The house you reference had a little window in the gable, maybe it was a dove door originally?

Thanks very much Helen, it looked such an interesting building, especially looking up Cuckoo Lane from the Spicerstoke, towards the Gulson Library. I missed so much being born ten years or so later than Kaga!

On 3rd Aug 2018 5:05am, NeilsYard said: Great find Helen Thumbs up I think this one was Osmiroid's - the side of the same building with the walk through at the southern end of Butcher Row heading towards Broadgate in the background.
Prof. Every one of those buildings were registered as Churchyard, the buildings they replaced 200 years ago were registered as Churchyard also. The first library in the early 1800s was run by a man named Mr Spell, bit of useless info!

Thanks Kaga. The Librarian who started by picking up books from the bombed building became the City Librarian, a Mr. Atkins of a Coventry family.

Farewell Trinity Lane of old. Sad A good (though sad) comparison with Osmiroid's great image on post #82 - you can see the same iron railings. Edited by member, 28th Aug 2019 11:44 am
