Although I came across Irishmans Pad (separate thread!) I didn't find what I was looking for, so, can anyone locate the above address for me, please? Thumbs up

Can't find Douglas Square, the only Cross Street I can find is running north from the end of Vine Street to Harnall Lane East.

I reckon this is it. The image is from the 1935/6 Coventry directory.

Also, in the 1960 directory it gives the following; Cross Street 9. Reid A. Douglas Square 10. Richards P C. Douglas Square. No other entries.

Thanks, all! Found it! Cross Street was effectively a continuation of Vine Street towards Harnall Lane, and Douglas Square was halfway along on the eastern side Cheers

I don't know the date of this Coventry street guide/map but I was told it was from the sixties. It shows Cross Street and I've marked where Douglas Square most probably was sited. Maybe others can shed light on it?
