In post 85, there is a large single story building on the LHS (just before the Silver Sword). Can anyone remember what business was there, please. I know that it sat empty for some time (in the early 60`s).

Phil, Tandy/Radio Shack had a shop in Fairfax Street near Fishy Moore's, opposite Pool Meadow when I moved to Coventry in 1984. I don't think it lasted more than a couple of years after that. The Tandy Corporation brought Radio Shack in 1962, but then started re-using the Radio Shack brand in 1995 and finally changed its name to Radio Shack in 2000. Peter.

I think there was a tv rental shop called Visionhire. We rented a tv from there. Does anyone recall a hairdressers at the bottom of Trinity Street on the opposite side (Patricia's)? I reckon this must have been in the mid to late 60s.

I think that was Irene Rixom.

Is that a police bike directly behind the orange Volkswagen Beetle? If so it will be a Meriden built Triumph Saint, 650cc, with an officer from the Coventry Traffic Department on a city centre patrol.

Unusual view of Trinity St/Hales St corner prior to buildings that most of us were familiar with. Edited by member, 10th Oct 2018 11:31 pm

Yes, it would have to be around 1937, give or take a few months, as Trinity Street appears to be just beginning.
