Sorry about the quality but I thought it would be of interest. It was pasted on the reverse of a very fancy picture frame from 1889.

Yes, it is interesting, Harrier - thanks for posting it Thumbs up Haven't been able to locate "Langton Terrace, Foleshill", although I believe the label says "near St Mark's Church" - perhaps you can confirm this from the original? Goddard's newsagent in Spon Street was "Charles H Goddard" - coincidence or one and the same?

Hi Harrier and Midland Red, I agree that is interesting Harrier, thanks for scanning it. Did a very quick bit of looking:- in the 1881 census Charles H. Goddard (born about 1865/ 16 in 1881) is registered at 10 Spon Street, Coventry as a cabinet maker. In 1891 he is registered at 4 Langton Terrace (again as a cabinet maker) with his wife Kate and son William. In 1911 Charles Herbert Goddard is registered at 10 Spon Street again, this time as a newsagent (so I think you're 100% right Midland Red there is a connection). 10 Spon street later became 'Goddard News'.

Looking at the 1914 traffic plan on this site, the groups of houses on the Stoney Stanton Road are labelled with terrace names (Alma Terrace, Milton Terrace etc.). The first block of houses on the site of the Walk-In Centre is near St Marks and does not have a name, this could have been Langton Terrace. Peter.

In articles in the Telegraph Langton Terrace is sometimes mentioned as in Great Heath and also Old Foleshill Road.
