In the trade it’s called either a "fixer upperer" or "handyman’s dream". A few nails here and there, it’s as good as new!

Gumnut, Hi, now during the war the official name was an 'Holder Upper', assistant to a 'Rivet Fixer' - his sole job was to hold up parts, while the riveter knocked the rivets into the part that was held in a vice the opposite end.

Thanks to Dean Nelson on the True Cov FB page - I've never seen this view down Greyfriars Lane before. Fords on the left and such a good image of the Cheylesmore Inn!

The pub was formerly called the Bell and was 3 storeys. For some reason they took the roof and the top floor off. There is a possibility that the building was a timber frame building clad with a single skin of brick. This process of cladding would often accelerate the decay of the timbers and maybe the bricks couldn't support 3 storeys.

Is anyone on here bidding on that Ford's/Cheylesmore postcard on eBay? If so, then I'll not bid it up any higher - I've been outbid once already! Wink

Rob, shows Ford's well but Neil's post 48 obscures it with more of the Inn!

There's been a lot of interest in Coventry images and books recently. It's pushing the price up Sad I suspect that authors are collecting a few to illustrate new books for the City of Culture? Old stuff can be copyright free and cheaper than getting a publishing license from the Herbert or Francis Frith. I'm mostly concentrating on very old books with drawings in but a few photos are useful to put the sketches into more realistic proportions.
