Thanks to you all for reminding me of those pictures I had forgotten them. Yard, ring, it was the same area, as a kid I often ran into that area when shopping with the elders. Plenty of places to hide.

The exciting times of shopping in Coventry. Coventry was laid out better, or seemed to be when I was a kid. Get off the tram, top of Broadgate, down Butcher Row, across Bull Ring, across Burges to the Co-op, then into the covered market, up Smithford Street to Broadgate and the tram home. Remember one Sat morning going with dad into town, to Burges, there was a large shop that sold cobblers' 'stuff', dad bought some squares of leather to do our shoes, he also bought a load of tacks, the salesman weighed them out, then put them in an old cocoa tin we had brought for that purpose, I dropped the tin and there were tacks strewn all over the floor, a teenage lad appeared and swept them to one side, the salesman weighed out a fresh lot, no one got uptight, this time I held on to them tight, all the way to Highfield Road, watched the game, then walked across to Red Lane, down Stoney Stanton to Roses Garage where we had left our bikes, cycled home, still clutching the cocoa tin (I was about 6/7 years of age).

Heathite, Your photo on 82 is a wonderful shot of Owen Owen, considering it only had a life-span of about four years. Once again there's a keep-left sign in the picture, but how that other gets in I have know idea (you relation to Paul Daniels?) Cheers
