The Geisha was roughly next plot up from where The Dome was. Demolished a couple of years before The Dome was built, I think. Don't know if their locations overlapped?

Osmiroid, The Geisha in the fifties was well known to be a little upper-class, you didn't get lorry drivers or brickies in there, some people knew it as 'the little finger cafe'. For some reason during the war a lot of ministries, council, used the lower half of Hertford Street, I think you went to a shop there if you lost your ration book, think there was a register there for blood donations or injury questions, ARP questions and information, that sort of thing.

Hi, here is a possible result from the 1955 directory. It wasn't there in 1940 or 1960 but it was listed in 1953.

I remember going to a cafe, with Mayjan, in King William Street, circa 1952. The photo of the cafe looks familiar, although I can't remember what it was called. Edited by member, 27th Mar 2019 5:25 pm

Hi Neil, as far as I know the directories are not available on-line. At this address, they used to be available for download. I know it's a Leicester Uni site but they did have a few that covered Coventry. If you read the info you will see that the download option is no longer available. Btw, if you go here, you can download the Kelly's 1912 of Warwickshire. Go to top right where the download and print icon is situated, select the 'all' option from the download icon, and bingo. I'd not seen the Kelly's before, I got the Spennell's, now I have both. Thumbs up Edited by member, 28th Mar 2019 9:43 am
