I can't recall if I've added this one before - 1987 Footage - so posting again just to be sure(!) Not exactly a fantastically well filmed piece but interesting footage at the start of what was around at the bottom of Far Gosford Street at the time - which happened to be the day we won the Cup in '87

Thanks Neil, We remember that day well and enjoyed all the hype even living here. Whilst I was viewing that footage, I went into 'Coventry: Then and Now (50 photos)'. I cannot believe that is the Coventry I knew, even after seeing so many of the members' wonderful contributions. It's hard to grasp the changes that have been made over the years, but expected naturally, despite a few eyesores (old and new) but then every city has those. Wave

Yes Dreamtime, it's well publicised (to me especially!) of the changes made (sadly) by the war but I have to say even in the last 30 years there has been some huge changes in the city centre. Edited by member, 7th Feb 2018 3:51 am

Hi Neil, having watched the linked film, I ended up watching more 'youtube' films associated with the Cup Final. Brought back a lot of memories. I lived in Warwick at the time and travelled into the city both on the Saturday night and Sunday. ps I hope the filmmaker in your link cleared up the dogmess his pet had made in Gosford Green Park! Big grin
