(link to Historic England website) There is a new book out, "Coventry: The making of a modern city 1939-73" by Historic England. Its an interesting read of what is, was and might have been, plus some of the thinking behind it. £14.99 from the Cathedral gift shop, but no doubt available from "all good booksellers". Peter.

I don't think this has been posted before, a short video clip of the 1945 plans for the city centre.

Possibly the best image I've seen showing the line differences in the original Smithford Street and the developing Smithford Way.

Excellent documentation, but mostly sadness at seeing the great street disappear.

Another good one in respect of the comparison of line between Smithford Street and Way, but bad one in respect of the content!

Here's another interesting comparison shot to the above one as the foundations went down.
