One thing that I spotted for the first time is the gas pipes along the wall. That was one of the odd features about a mystery yard picture you posted some while ago. The article mentions that the only amenity he had was gas lighting.

About 1980 a schoolfriend and I were sketching around town when he pointed to a roof behind the Coventry Halfpenny and said 'there's some sort of old building behind there'. To cut a long story short we gained access to the premises via the jewellers on the Burges on the pretext of sketching the old court. There was a time lock mechanism on their metal door which meant we had an hour before they could reopen it. Suffice to say as soon as they shut the door we started exploring the building. It was like a time capsule, old newspapers and cigarette packets which I guess were Mr Morrell's were still on tables. Other than the thick layer of dust everywhere it looked liked someone had only just left. We noticed it had been demolished sometime in the mid-80s.

Great update Greeny - I did wonder. Shame reallly as we only have the Watch Museum section and the Weavers House as remaining elements of Court living.
