In 1918 T E Brown, butcher, was at a tribunal appealing against National Service. His address was 90 Walsgrave Road, which is here. Looks like it to me, you can just see the butchers is on a corner.

Oops, sorry for misleading everyone but you all know that I don't understand the city outside the old boundaries. I think Anne has it right about the modern location but I find all these shop postcards interesting/amusing. They thought they were giving away an advert for their shop but were placing themselves in history too.

Shops covered with meat or fish seem very popular for being photographed. 53 Caludon Road was run by E V Bernasconi who calls himself ‘Progressive, advertising & printing’. I wonder if they went round knocking on doors to get people to have their shop photographed. We have come across many of these postcards to identify. I wonder why they did not put the address on them.

The road looks so wide in that postcard Rob, especially compared to the old road in the distance but even on wide angle in Google it looks quite a modest road. Even at that point the shop looks modernised compared to the shop card. Modern view of Walsgrave Road.

Also a wool shop just down towards Clay Lane on rhs, Miss Mundy, and later owned by Edith Broughton who lived in Druid Road after long residence towards the bottom of Marlborough Road. The family had a veg and fruit stall in Barracks Market! Also in the other direction near/on corner, St Michael's towards Old Ball, Boswells? Good furniture shop, where most of my furniture came from in 1961.
