Thanks, Helen. I note the spelling is Rider, so maybe they had another shop in the central area, which I think it could be? Also is it not Durbar Avenue, not Dunbar? Edited by member, 29th May 2021 10:05 pm

You're right Prof, but it's not Durbar Avenue either.

Yes, I realise that Helen. It looks rather central to me but can't put my finger on it.

I wonder if the bus stop sign offers a clue. I don't know much about bus stops, but I think the one in the picture might be one on a works route (perhaps 'Route A'). Does this help?

I don't think that it's an inner Coventry street, it isn't as old as those. It could be one of the outer areas like Chapelfields or Foleshill or as far as Nuneaton. There's even a possibility it's not Coventry at all. A lot of images are erroneously tagged. Pinterest drives me mad with the number of photos of Stourbridge linked with Coventry.

I agree MR. It has to be Coventry in this case surely? I think the houses look pre WW1. Edited by member, 31st May 2021 9:50 am
