I was recently told this picture is of shops my mum's uncles had in Gosford St on the east side of the road near where the Ring Road flyover now passes. I am not sure as I always thought that most of that side of the family lived in Rugby and the 1901 census records a George Andrews, Hairdresser, living in 21 William St, Rugby (it's just off Railway Terrace). It looks to me like it was taken sometime between 1900 and 1930. Anyone have any idea?

It's not impossible that this could be the Gosford area but it doesn't match anything I have for Gosford Street itself. There are a few blanks in my record but the styling of the building doesn't quite fit. If this is on an east side, it might be one of the courts, as Gosford Street has north and south sides as it runs east, west. If anyone can find a house number for it, I might be able to match it but I think your suspicion it might be Rugby could be right. There was a hairdressers at number 16, roughly where the ring road is but this isn't that building. Edited by member, 29th Jun 2018 12:12 pm

Running on from richu's query, which might be aided by those with access to records. On 6th Dec 1871 there was a murder in Gosford Street (see David McGrory book Foul Deed & Suspicious Deaths in Coventry) and there is a picture of the murder scene from a contemporary Penny Dreadful. The murder was outside an umbrella repair shop with what looks like the name Chamberlain. The name of the victim was John Millward who lived in a court with an entrance next door to the shop. Does anyone have access to census or directory that might help me work out which court/shop this was? Thanks in advance - even if you can't help. Smile Edited by member, 29th Jun 2018 12:11 pm

Dear Helen F, We have an 1874 Coventry Directory and there was a T Chamberlain umbrella maker at no 47 Gosford Street. If the street numbering is correct then living at no 45 would have been William Webb, fitter or at no 49 John Henry Shilcock of the Fox and Vivian tavern. Hope that this helps you with your research.

That's excellent, thanks just what I needed to know! The poor man was going to be taken to the Fox and Vivian but he was too gravely injured. This identifies the building in the sketch and it's quite useful. The court behind the man is emerging from is number 19. It has no name on the Board of Health and had been demolished and turned into a low factory by the time aerial photography captured the area. I only have very angled photo view of the front of the building and one decent Bunney painting but even in that the lower walls had been boarded up. Thumbs up Edited by member, 29th Jun 2018 2:45 pm

Thanks Heathite. The murderer was called Arthur Brown. The first witness was David Brown from number 86 on the other side of the road and they called a Dr Brown to care for Millward. Although his treatment consisted of a brandy. It would have been better poured on the wound. Have you got anything on Andrews hairdresser and/or tobacconist to help out our new member richu? You have Thumbs up Edited by member, 29th Jun 2018 5:13 pm

I think Railway Terrace hooks onto Church Street in Rugby. Also on the 1911 census there is a George Thomas ANDREWS, born 1872 Hillmorton, a hairdresser. His wife, Rose Fanny, born 1870 Buckthorne Yorkshire. Their address is 17 Gosford Street. George's father was born 1847, Suffolk, and he is a gardener, his wife - Emma born 1849 Princethorpe. Their address - in 1881 is 26 Cambridge Street Rugby. Seems to be correct. Lol Spennell's 1912, everyone should download this - it's free. Edited by member, 29th Jun 2018 6:50 pm

North St runs into Church St then Clifton Rd. No 42 Church St is just before the corner of Gas St. Just before Railway Terrace. Sorry Heathite but that does not show up well on a map or Google. No offence intended. Thumbs up
