Apologies if you've seen these already but some very interesting shots here - some really reminded me of growing up in the 80's, especially Coventry Theatre and Pool Meadow - BBC Photos.

Apologies of the owner is already here but found this photostream which has some fantastic Coventry imagery : Flickr. What was the building to the left of the Fire Station with the pointed tower?

Yes, very evocative! I would dispute a few of the dates (I thought the Broadgate ones were a little later), but they brought some good memories back! Thanks for the link. Thumbs up

I've just uploaded some photos of Coventry taken in 1999 from the top of Priory Hall, Priory Street. Although not very old, they show a number of changes in the city centre that people may find interesting. Coventry, 1999

Just having a quick look nm57. Really good shots, you`re right it has changed quite a bit in a very short time. Great piece of recent history, nice one for posting.

Hi, the old factory on your photos I think is part of the old B.T.H, the main entrance was in Read Street and had a works canteen in South Street. We had many a happy Christmas party in that canteen. Cheers

I don't know if this has been posted before, but there are some photos of Coventry on the Bridgeman website here.

I have found this site - English Heritage photos of Coventry - the 'Coventry' search came up with 182 images. There are a lot of old street photo's that I haven't seen before (about halfway in, between cathedral shots). Worth taking a peek. I would like to know more about some of the streets, if anyone has memories of them, there's Russell St, Wellington, Rudge, Bury, Butts, Brook and quite a few more.

I clicked on the details of the photographer of the old houses and he is John Prest, he published a book in 1960, The Industrial Revolution in Coventry, OUP, it isn't inundated with photos I don't think - about 15, there appears to be plenty available on the web so I think I am having one.
