I don't know where this is but the image below, from the Fourtoes website, is the other side of it. House with greenhouse And I reckon that this is a garage block to it. Note the weird support to the veranda, the roof and the barge board styling. Garage to above Edited by member, 7th Jan 2021 5:27 pm

This is the right hand end of Hylands and you look from the street. View that matches the photo. As others have noted this is also Hylands. The rear of Hylands. Edited by member, 7th Jan 2021 7:04 pm

That Dalecote House one is strange as it’s listed as Charterhouse Lodge on modern Google Maps and there appears to be an upper bay window added to that side that does not even match the modern website logo. My wife has been in there before - it’s the Masonic Lodge if I'm not mistaken. She used to teach at Davenport Lodge School in Davenport Road and they used to have a Christmas party in there. Helen, do you want me to add location comments on the Flickr album? I did the Darlaston House one already and obviously credited you (and mentioned the forum, Rob!)

As some have already been flipped, it would be worth considering that the others might be the wrong way round too - Dalecote House is the wrong way round. I might place the others if the orientation is right. It might affect the actual number of the Warwick Road one too as features might be flipped. I'll see to it.

This one has been identified as Birch Tree Cottage in Keresley. Birch Tree Cottage from the front Old Maps location And looking at the map, I'm right, this one is its garage. Garage of Birch Tree Cottage Sorry Neil, I missed your question about posting on Flickr for me. Yes please.

Some of the photos seem to be in batches - maybe based on a long walk. There are a number based on the river out near the Waste Disposal Plant/Sewage Works. This is south of the WDP/SW, looking west. The London Road was beyond the houses and the land beyond was to become the cemetery. River Sherbourne with London Road beyond This is the WDP looking north west. Swift's Corner Sewage Works The track crosses the river and this might be near the bridge looking north east, with the WDP/SW off to the left. As someone notes, it is the railway line in the distance. It could also be the other side of the railway line looking south west. Might be the eastern branch of the river going round the Sewage Works. Map of area It's a wild guess but I wonder if this is the dried up bed of the Sherbourne when it ran to the west of the plant. The path followed its line into the trees. You can see stone blocks in the bank on the right. Might this be part of where Swift's Corner mill was? Swift's Corner?

Many thanks, Neil - they are and even one of the Coventry Operatic Society with my Uncle Fred as the Captain of the Scotch Archers in 'The Vagabond King', a Hippodrome production in the 1930's. Alas I was probably not yet born! Edited by member, 27th Mar 2021 8:06 pm

The new library pictures site is hard to search through but there are a lot of new images from the City Architects. Beware very open search terms because each new tranche of pictures slow the thing down to the point it throws you out for inactivity. eg I just searched for 'city architects' and while very interesting, it took ages after the first few demands for more. I refined the searches to city architects and another term eg street or spon or hill but that relies on you guessing another word in the picture tags. There are some good images that I discovered by accident eg there was a picture of a Bishop Street rear with a tower block in the distant. The tag was for the flats, not the street. There are some interesting images for park street, including the demolition of the brewery. My usability score for the site is poor and Rob's version was much, much better, but I expect they've gone for the security features - while you can't screen print or copy the pictures directly, there is a way round that for the determined Twisted . I expect it's also more phone and tablet friendly but I suspect that most people using the images would be using something more dedicated to work like a laptop. The other feature I find annoying is the large numbers of modern photographs of almost exactly the same event/thing eg I had to wade through pictures of a pop concert while looking for old pictures of the Godiva procession. It doesn't help to search for the oldest shots because I'm not sure that the old photos as tagged as old yet. I'm not even sure of all the old pictures have been entered. I certainly haven't found photos I know were in the old collection.
