He moved around quite a bit but sometimes needed a bit of help from his drinking pals Smile

Here is another "Peeping Tom" from Colin. Can anyone clarify where it is or was?

King's Head Hotel, corner of Smithford Street and Hertford Street, approximately where Broadgate House is today.

Yes, a later version of the hotel with Peeping Tom occupying a fancier window opening on the corner.

I'm convinced there used to be a Peeping Tom looking over the newly built Hertford Street from Broadgate House in the 60's - have I got a mixed up memory? Wave

That looks like the one from the pub of the same name which was at the bottom of Hertford Street? Pictures of Coventry

Does anyone know the origins of all these Toms?!? The one that was on the Kings Head looked left but the one that was at the bottom of Hertford Street (is that the same one that's in Cliff's photo?) looks right?

This is another one I have not seen before. From Coventry Telegraph November 1940 courtesy of British Newspaper Archive. I don't recognise the building you can see, it looks like a roof top.

I took this photo in October 2014 in the bar of The Rainbow Inn in Allesley village.

Thanks for that Derrickarthur. Found a bit of information on t'internet. The statue was commissioned in 1934 by the late Tom Freeman who was unhappy with the sculptures in the city. He asked local sculptures the Ormerod Brothers to make it. It says the busts first home was in a gable window at what was then a sweet shop in Bishop's Street but I haven't as yet been able to find a picture of a Bishop's Street shop with a gable. Although it survived the bombing as per the newspaper article the Freeman's were bombed out of the shop so it was taken away by Mr Freeman's son and used it as a garden ornament in Warwick.. They auctioned it off in 2007 and was bought by the Dosanjh's of the Rainbow Inn. Another article says that this was the youngest of 5 peeping Toms.
