That's a very arty photo Robin. It says a lot about the past, present and the future with the new building in the background.

Residents are invited to have their say on proposals for the regeneration of the Burges area of the city at drop-in sessions later this week. Please see here for further information.

Walking around Coventry yesterday, I happened upon the rear of the buildings on the west side of Burges, and I could see what looked like a name in the brickwork at the top of one of the buildings Wasn't sure at first . . . . so, with some help from Photoshop, I can now see the name "Smarts" I found that they were furnishers and actually appear across the top of a page in the 1947 Telephone Directory! Thumbs up

Photo's late thirties, and people still wander across the road at a busy junction.

Don't think we have had this one before, not bomb damage, building site excavations in 1936

The one in the picture doesn't look as if it has the inner black ring although it is not very clear. That one looks more like the one on the Broadgate picture. Would the one on the picture of the tram lines have survived the war?

Nearest match is a Morgan Aero but the front end I think is different.
