Thanks guys Smile It's moving along in fits and starts but I am beginning to think that it's doable. I keep having to stop and research stuff when I realise I know don't how stuff worked or what it looked like round the back.

This is looking good. I think what we'll see is these kind of individual projects of people recreating different eras being pieced together to create a timeline so you can watch cities change over time. Imagine coming onto Rob's site and being able to take a 3D tour through the ages!

Just looking at the map at street level is spookily effective. Coventry is a tempting city to model and I doubt we've seen the last person attempting it. I can only imagine what will be possible 50 years from now, which might be how long it takes me. Blush

Hi MR. I wish I'd given the thread a more specific title but it's morphed along with my personal journey Roll eyes When I started I had no real idea of era or the scope of what I was embarking on.

Please remember that this is still the sketching stage and just made up of simple shapes, it's not aiming for perfect replication but just get the right number of floors and roof shapes. I'm still working out how the images relate to the maps and when I reach an impasse I put something in for the time being. I'll post some of the different areas over a few days. First up - Gosford Street.

We're used to seeing the ratty old brick side of the New Inn. The sketch of the upper windows is from a Troughton drawing of the west end entrance and the full image suggests that it might have been a respectable Georgian building if it had been plastered and painted. The row of windows however also hints that it might have also been an older half timbered building that had had a makeover. They often just gave the exterior a brick outer coat, removing the jettying and gables that signalled a medieval or Tudor origin. I've tried to imagine those works in reverse.

Thanks Dreamtime, it's coming along Big grin Next Broadgate. The west side of Broadgate (first image) was relatively simple but I've had a problem with the east. I couldn't get the old and the new to fit together until I realised that some of the old buildings were half a new building. The last building on the right I've done as the 'new' version that survived until the war but I've drawn on in a dotted red line the roof that fits the old version. The alignment of the roofs and the Cross explain why neither spire appears in the sketch of Broadgate. Some of the other sketches might fit too because they might show the layer behind, some of which were 2 storey.

Brilliant progress. You're gradually solving a four dimensional jigsaw, length, breadth, height and time.

The next area is West Orchard, bringing together many different images, including one of Anne's rare sketches, documents for the Bablake school trust and a child's drawing. Note that there are no geographical features, including the channel for the river.
