Hi all I come from a long line of Coventrians and pre-war and during the war years, my grandparents and great grandparents ran newsagents in the city on Rudge Road and Warwick Row - number 27 Warwick Row and prior to that it was based at the end where Loveitt estate agents are based now. I am trying to find any photos or information, particularly on the one in Rudge Road that my nan and grandad, Eva and Robert White, used to run. Anything you have would be great. Thank you.

Lived at Croft Road until 1959, can remember the small newsagents at No 50 Rudge Rd, delivered newspapers for the Warwick Row outlet - did not realise they were related - seem to recall it being run by a Mr Adams?
