I wonder if the cretins whose decision it was to desicrate our city, were pleased with what they did. WHY

I know - I'm a grumpy old whatsit..........

The shop blinds that I remember so well, were always a place to shelter when you dodged a rain shower.

Thanks for the photo's Jerry. Isn't it great to have the Album section back again. Thanks to Rod - and Keith?


Gone but not forgotten. R.I.P.
Its a week of 1st Rod you did by yourself

I did My first Photo up load

Jerry. Just come across those two photos from 1910 and 2000 of Coventry Road. Absolutely fantastic. This is the stuff that really makes this site a must. Thanks for putting them up.
