Great photos, Robin - but so much has already changed from my memories of growing up in this area in the seventies! Here's a few memories brought on by your photos: In and around Shelton Square - The birdcage by the toy shop, Virgin Records, Dockerys? fish shop, Woolies where my aunt ran the cafe. Hertford Street - The Curry Bowl (first ever curry), The Army Recruitment Store and a bit further up WHSmith and HMV. I've posted previously about the Empire being replaced by the ABC/HMV cinema and the "Woof and Puff" Beryl Houghton's photography store and The Three Tuns at the bottom of Hertford Street by the "supermarket" now the "The Litten Tree" and singing with the Phoenix Male Voice Choir in the Central Hall. Just a few memories!

Thanks to those who gave kind words about my photographs. My passion is photography. For 15 years I worked in a school of architecture as a photographer. The experience I gained there helps so much in my taking pictures of buildings - especially modern buildings. At Thames Polytechnic (now Greenwich University) I often sat in on lectures and critiques of student's work to gain more insights. In this forum I am learning again. I learn from the accumulation of individual histories, memories, and knowledge that people write about on the Historic Coventry Forum. These days I am mostly confined to a mobility scooter for getting about. Perhaps 'confined' is the wrong word. I'm always sitting down, while I see others of my age struggling going up ramps carrying their shopping. I can stop almost wherever I wish to take a picture. I travel in relative comfort. And there are rarely traffic jams on pavements Thumbs up
