Thanks Neil, for the photo 148 from both myself and the wife Thumbs up as that's the place the wife got her wedding dress, just under the bridge on the left, 55 years ago Wink I've also driven on the road a few times to cross town.

My pleasure Dougie / all. The Westminster Bank looked a fine building as well.

Dougie, were you referring to Sellrights for wedding dresses? I bought mine from there 55 yrs ago (August time).

Dreamtime Big grin I remember the shop and the display window opposite as if it was yesterday but not the name Smile, but I do remember it cost her two weeks of her wages for the dress. I've asked the wife the name but she can't remember either. 55 years, it's a long time. I'm hoping to reach 60 years all being well, as my three sisters and one brother have already achieved it - fingers crossed. Thumbs up

That`s it Prof. Bank Chambers, thanks for the prompt! Somewhere at the back of my mind comes a name Statham and Fensom. Have you or anybody else heard of it? (Just dug out my Old Boys tie - it`s akin to a piece of string now - I had hoped they might have put a label on it - but no such luck. As a by the by, my dad used his tie as a belt to tie up his trousers) Cheers Post copied from topic Hayward's of Earl Street on 20th Jun 2018 8:42 am

Spot on Roger, Statham and Fensom. I think my elder brother was a customer, but it was on the expensive side for me.

Evokes many memories for me CKV. Used to cycle from Woodlands School in Broad Lane to have my mid-day meal at Pattison's café. The Geisha also well known to our family. My brother worked for a time in Green's on the camera side before becoming manager of the camera dept at Harrison's High St.

"THANK YOU" Prof for your interesting reply to my post here above, as it's much appreciated and I'm pleased that my Hertford Street picture has evoked so many memories for you! That's the one good thing about this Forum, as lots of the posts and pictures on here must evoke so many memories for such a lot of people and not just for people here in Coventry, but for people all over the world who once lived here!!!!

Yes Geoff, I thought that too. The Queen's Hotel - it had a white sign in the form of a hand holding up a playing card of the Queen of Hearts!

I well remember Kunzle cakes Roger and I guess you are right about the provenance. I think you could buy them as well in Pattison's, Hertford St! As you perhaps are of my generation, Roger we might have been in the Geisha café on Fridays at the same time, as my mother and grandmother met there, and I was usually with them, in the school holidays at least. We got to know one of the waitresses quite well, though I do not recall her name. Edited by member, 20th Jun 2018 10:37 pm

Statham & Fensom from the 1937 directory, they're in the 1935 too. The second image is for any other Hertford Street aficionado's.

Hertford St as it was, yes I entirely agree Flapdoodle! Then it might look like that fine print of it Morgana posted! Edited by member, 20th Jun 2018 10:42 pm

Lovely posting Prof, I will treasure the thought that our association on this august site was pre-ordained. I think you are right, Friday was the day for a trip "up town" and a meeting with my mother and elder sister at the Geisha
