Does anyone know where Parkinson's Art Supplies were sometime in the 60's? I have them showing as at No.26 Cope Street in the 1957 Directory but that was not right at a junction looking at maps (next but one to the junction with Dale Street). That's the latest Commercial Directory I have though - anyone got a later one? Pic thanks to Amanda Kerr on FB -

Double thumbs up I recon it could be 26, with number 1 Dale street next to it. There's even a change in the paintwork.

Hi Neil according to the CET 26 Cope Street Opposite College of Art and New Cathedral until they moved in 1962 to 116 Gosford Street 100 yards from the Gaumont. Take your pick !!

Thanks both. Cope Street seems the more likely - its just on the 1950 Map No.1 Dale Street is showing as the building on the corner - looking at the pic you would imagine that would be the Art shop address not 26 Cope Street?

A favourite photo of mine. The photo is taken from Cope Street, looking at New Street. Dale Street was behind the photographer and to the right.

Recently (through googling I think, though it may have been via Pinterest) I came across a whole trove of brilliant images of wartime central Coventry I'd never seen before. I thought I'd done what I usually do and bookmarked them but clearly didn't. A couple of things I remember, one was of the Charles Ager shoe shop. After they'd been bombed out of Smithford Street, they re-opened at 22-24 Corporation Street where they've continued trading ever since. Next door in the same block and on the right, the photo of c 1943 showed Orme Bros, men's outfitters who had relocated from Market Place. Some of the other photos showed the temporary Dolcis shoe shop at the bottom of Hertford Street in what had been the Peeping Tom pub, corner of Bull Yard. It was later the shop of G E Jones (I think) till the Bull Yard development tore all of that side of Hertford Street down. The Dolcis photos were during the war as there were men in uniform in the throngs on the pavement. I have a vague idea I accessed these photos by clicking on specific streets on an orange map of the city centre (as one does with Coventry Atlas). I don't know if any of this rings bells for you but I'm very frustrated that I can't find those photos again. I'd never seen them before and it's always exciting when one comes across a new source isn't it? Any hints would be greatly appreciated, many thanks.
