Liked the little notes of "liable to flood" along the river!!

All the way along the Sherbourne valley it has always flooded, the Victorian books are full of it. We could easily have made it a Venice or Amsterdam canal district from Spon End to Hillfields, and to me that was the intention in the 1920, but for some reason it got blocked. Why did they build the hospital (Stoney Stanton Road) on such damp ground? And again, Walsgrave on damp ground?

Hi all, here's a map of Coventry from the 1911 directory. Not all directories include a map, they probably get ripped out and used on their own. I think the map shows tram routes too. Thumbs up
