Brilliant photography thanks clive
I lived in Gerard Ave Canley 1944-1959, now in Australia. So many memories of the youth club in queen margarets rd
Good to have you at the Daimler & Lanchester Owners' Club International Rally once again, Cliff, and the photographs as ever are marvellous. You have documented the rally in photographic form enabling those who attended to remember it for years to come, and those that were not able to attend to enjoy the spirit of the day.
As an exiled Coventry kid I recall hearing that the tunnels at Folly Lane were used as bomb shelters during the Blitz. Can anyone confirm? PS oh! what have you allowed them to do to my home town - it's awful now but when I was a kid and teenager (40's and 50's) it was a lovely place.
CAN I SAY HOW GREAT IT WAS TO FIND YOUR SIGHT WITH THE COVENTRY SPEEDWAY PICTURES i AM IN THE PROCESS IN GATHERING INFORMATION TO BUILD A WEB SITE FOR THE BEES HISTORY READING THE NAME AND SEEING THE PICS DO YOU CHARGE VFOR COPIES OF YOUR PHOTOS
Superb photographs from someone who is passionate about their work. A wonderful time capsule of information and for remembering a time when things were so much different.
A real labour of love.
I found this website through 'Historic Coventry'.
The sections on the Coventry buses bring back memories of proper Corporation buses in Coventry colours. I never thought that I would ever see 'Coventry' Daimler CVG6's parked up in Broadgate ever again. What a sight!! Magnificent.
I wish that I had the foresight to take photos of the same buses in their heyday, but who ever thought that they would disappear. I didn't..
Thank you so much for these collections. If it is ok with you, I may snaffle a few and make up a slideshow screeensaver for myself, a reminder of my early life in Coventry when the only worry was if I still had the sixpence to get all of the way home..
I stumbled across your website when undertaking research for my Warwickshire Railways website.
You have created a fantastic resource of quality photographs which in time will become an invaluable archive. Keep up the good work!
