An attempt at something for each photo. I fully expect corrections. The Transport Museum might know better facts about any vehicles. #1 Children looking at a 1912 Austin car at an open air show. #2 A wedding group. #3 A chapel in the new cathedral. #4 A wedding group. #5 The Triumph streamliner built by aircraft mechanic Joe Dudek. Rider Bill Johnson initially piloted Dudek's machine to a petrol powered record of 205mph, but the pair then drained the fuel from the bike, changed the carburettor jets and refuelled with nitro methane to set the record in 1962 – 224.57mph. Dudek gained the inspiration for his Triumph streamliner from the X-15 rocket-plane and built it with a bored-out T120 Bonneville engine. The record stood (in the Streamlined, Altered Frame/Fuel class) until 1992. The Dudek streamliner was destroyed in a fire in 1974. #6 Early stage of the building of the new cathedral. Looking towards the spire of the old cathedral St Michael’s. #7 A fire at a tractor factory (Massey Ferguson?) #8 Classroom with children sat at desks. #9 Cars destroyed by a collapsed wall. Possibly a building. #10 Blackdown Mill Leamington Spa. Occupied by Charles Antiques 1960-1970. Business owned by Charles T. & N.J. Fellowes. #11 A mayoral function where it looks like flowers and a silver tea service are being awarded. #12 What looks like a theatre production. #13 An unknown big house #14 Four footballers. #15 Six businessmen or trade delegates in the Precinct with St Michael’s spire in the background. #16 A wedding group. #17 A chapel in the new cathedral. #18 View of new cathedral under construction and the north east of the city seen from the spire of the old cathedral St Michael’s. #19 A cup winning cyclist. #20 Unknown man. #21 Scouts building a den out of tree branches and bracken. #22 A wedding group. #23 A social club with bar and snooker table connected to Chauntry Place. #24 A mayoral party with a wreath probably in the War Memorial Park. #25 Two men looking at an old book. #26 An unknown building. #27 Fire damage at an unknown factory but may be connected to fire at tractor factory. #28 Mayoral presentation of a ship ornament. #29 The pub sign for The Joseph Arch pub, 7 Bridge Street in Barford. Former coaching inn. #30 Five men at an outdoor event studying programmes. #31 What looks like a theatre production. #32 Maze of scaffolding during the construction of the new cathedral. #33 Man and woman at an unknown crossroads discussing something. #34 An equestrian event at a place with a Tudor or Tudor style house. #35 An unknown building. #36 An anti strike protest outside the TGWU building. #37 A man getting out of a glider. #38 A seated man. #39 A mayoral party entering a car. #40 A mayoral function with a meal. #41 A member of the clergy. #42 A sportsman, probably a Coventry football player. #43 A mayoral party headed by Pearl Hyde meeting Jimmy Hill. Pearl Hyde was Coventry’s first female Lord Mayor elected in 1957. #44 A crowd of what looks like union members engaging in a ballot. #45 Birthplace of Joseph ??? #46 A damaged plane or glider. #47 Archaeological dig at the north end of Whitefriars monastery. The area was part of the old church. The brick buildings, including the white painted wall and everything to the right of that, were demolished and the ramp for the ring road was built over the right hand side of the photo. The original cloister extended to the right of the stone wall before the Dissolution and some of the structure survived as a boundary wall till at least 1750. Parts of it, including the gatehouse survived until the war. #48 A group of people walking towards the Belgrade with the Coventry Telegraph building at the back of the photo. #49 Footballers with a trophy. #50 A speech being given in front of a theatre style curtain and seated dignitaries.

Managed to view all photos in the series starting with Highfield Road entrance on Coventry Digital but cannot see how to access past number one on this gallery. Can someone elucidate please.

I struggled argon and screen zoomed in and out a few times (CTRL - or CTRL +). The arrow is very small.

For my tenpenneth, I suggest pics nos. 12 & 31 are obviously of Brian Rix and fellow actors, but not in a stage setting, so presumably a hotel or stately home for a film production or theatre stage rehearsal for the camera. I have tried to look at plays/films where Rix might have played a naval rating, and the nearest I have found is a 1957 comedy film "Not wanted on voyage". If his fellow actors in the photos could be identified, it might provide a clue as to where filming took place or the cast were staying. No. 21, Annual Scout Camp at Rough Close, 1950/60's. No. 44, Top of Hearsall Common, or possibly Gosford Green. The houses in the background could help identify,

Wearethemods, the reason I think that it's a play is because the view out of the door is fake. The staircase is too small for the size of the room.

There is a small arrow - the software doesn't offer a way I can change the size, sadly.
