My maternal grandparents came to Coventry from Grantham in 1906 and the first house they had was 10 Ranby Road, near enough to Highfield Road for my granddad. They moved to St Michael's Road, and in the 20's bought a new house in Binley Road, opposite the Rectory. Edited by member, 13th Aug 2018 6:00 pm

Thank you for posting the pictures Philip. I can't help but feel sad seeing all those peoples homes demolished and then the new high rises. I wonder if those same people are any happier where they live now. Was it all for the good do you think. We are so fortunate for the homes we live in and not been compelled to make such a move.

One of our members has been brave enough to add some of his memories of early times in Hillfields to the Historic Coventry "Your memories" section, which you can read here.

This postcard view may be of interest to the author, as it shows the red-brick building and clock tower to which he refers Thumbs up

Looks like the pub referred to in the article was called The Crown Hotel (source, Real Ale Rambles) Thumbs up

The member who posted his "Hillfields memories" (Waltons) is having a bit of computer trouble at the moment, but he's asked me to give a big thank you to everyone who's helped, particularly Midland Red, Philip and Prof. Thumbs up

Hi Jerry, this one for you. Not a very good shot but a recent view of Canterbury St looking down to Raglan St. St Peters to the right and the white building just showing by the trees further down on the right is the only building still original along with a few houses on the left.

A message from Waltons for everyone.... Hi Members All! This is to thank Mid Red, Prof, Philip and anyone else commenting on my Canterbury Street "Clock Pub". Looking at that edifice photo of pub and fading street detail, l imagine my No 13 is one of those still in view down the street. Thanks Mid Red, l think this was yours. My Thanks to Prof! I believe the sepia coloured picture of "The Clock" was your input, it looks the oldest of the two, especially if the fellow outside the pub on the left of the picture is wearing "knickerbockers" or is he wearing cycle clips? l recognise the slight angle of the Primrose Hill and Victoria Street/Vine Street junction where the photographer, plate camera and black cloth would have been positioned. As an adjunct re the Vine Street/ Primrose Hill junction. Anyone remember the name of the fishing tackle shop on Vine Street corner? My earliest memory was of the fish trophies in the windows and the big carp lazing in the mill overflow into the Swanswell, viewed regularly from my pushchair. There was one more photo taken under miserable conditions, misty, dull, etc. an over the roof shot l think, taken from some high-rise which picked up, l suppose, what remains of one of the old back yards with outside wash house. Strangely, the church and towerof St Peters in Charles Street, where l was christened, was relatively clear amongst its trees. My paternal gran cleaned up after services before, during and after the war, until she passed in 1950. The crypt was the air raid shelter during the bombings for her and others around. Lastly l think it was Philip, with the Old Cov Buildings thread. I tried to connect but was not too impressed with the almost immediate security warnings every time l opened! l came across the same thread previously whilst browsing with the same warnings. Thanks anyway for your input. Thanks to Rob for your unfailing help in sorting my contact problems. Waltons
