The Emporium in Foleshill Road is now a grocers/green grocers, but I remember it being a Co-Op when I was growing up. Can anyone tell me, was it built to be a Co-Op, or does anyone know what the building was previously used for? Wave

I am sure it was built as part of Lockhurst Lane Industrial Co-op society, Tricia. I played with the 'WheatSheaf' band in that building. The band was sponsored by the co-op. That was in the sixties. Wave It was called 'Lockhurst Lane' for the convenience of goods traffic, most of which arrived by rail to Foleshill goods yard which was in Lockhurst Lane. Wave

Remember the Co-op well... we lived on Blackwell Road... we had a number for the Co-op Dividend and collected a small receipt each time we shopped... have been lurking on this wonderful site for two years and finally registered... Congratulations Rob Orland!!

Hi Rugby. Wave That's the reason that I believe that this site is so, so valuable. Whilst our city planners make rubble out of our city time & time again, a good way to see our history is on here. We slip up occasionally, (it's my age), but generally we get the gist of what is what. Best wishes. Wave
