This 1983 view from White Street shows the former Goodwin Foster Brown flour mills on the left and Wheatley Street School on the right, with an area of temporary car parking in the foreground. These buildings were completely cleared away shortly afterwards for the construction of Coventry's new bus garage. TBH I cannot recall the buildings really even though I must've wandered past them on my way up to Highfield Road.

I attended Wheatley Street School (Nursery and Primary) from about 1947 until about 1951. I can't remember the names of any of the teachers but do remember well, like you, the smell of the building, the daily dose of cod liver oil and the camp beds for the daily rest in the nursery. We lived around the corner in Priory Street and I spent many happy hours fishing for sticklebacks in Swanswell Park and playing on the many bomb sites. Happy days.

Heres an interesting view - Mods feel free to move to any more suitable thread but a pre-ring-road image from St Michaels showing the soon to be demolished Ford Street with buildings including the Flour Mills and Wheatley school. Edited by member, 19th Dec 2015 5:05 pm

That school looks like a great building. Are there any more photographs of it?

Wheatley St School is where my dad and aunt were educated (?) after Stoke National. Dad left aged 13. It is also where I had to go from Folly Lane to sit the eleven plus examination!
