That's a classic MR. I am trying to imagine what they all look like inside.

Delays hit work to open up one of Coventry's long lost views (Coventry Telegraph).

An unusual post-war photo standing outside the ruins of the Kings Head looking along Hertford Street. Can anyone make out what the structure is behind the chap with the bicycle - bus stop?

Is it a police phone box of metal rather than a walk-in design? On second thoughts is it the pillar with the City coat of arms on it, that Princess Elizabeth unveiled to mark the start of the building the Precinct? This was I think incorporated into the left hand building of the Precinct, Broadgate House from standpoint with back to Broadgate. The pole to the left of the 'pillar' in the photo of the Princess would be the Elephant pole which was there when the royal visit was made. Edited by member, 26th Feb 2019 6:55 pm

The section to the right is definitely part of a bus shelter as a blown up image shows 'Stoke Heath'.

Mmmmm, well MR, could be the 50's as I see a cap is still in vogue and ladies are wearing hats, both I think may have been abandoned into the 60's. The shoes are obviously not stilettos. I also remember my mum wearing shoes like those. I am sitting here now waiting for someone to prove me wrong. The glazed bus stop windows would be a good clue, also the ladies hair styles - or could it be earlier still going by the lamp on the front of the gent's cycle. I did notice the Stoke Heath bus stop too.

My grandmother appears to be wearing the same shoes when she married my step grandad in 1941

Judging from the way that the child is dressed and the grim look on the passers by faces it looks like early 40's to me.

They were real furs too, Anne, my gran had a fox fur (with the head) always worn on special occasions, so definitely 40's I would agree.

My grandmother always had a fur coat. She had a long brown one, then later a three quarter light one. I don’t know what furs they were. When she got older she promised it to mum, my two sisters-in-law and me! When she died none of us wanted it, I didn't know what had happened to it but when my mum died I managed to get hold of her old next door neighbour, a lovely Indian girl who had been very kind to my mum and dad. She said she had my nan’s fur coat in the back of her wardrobe, did I want we want it back? We all said no, get rid of it!!
