Dear all, Coventry Telegraph archive here There's about 4,750 images - not everything you might remember as lots lost / destroyed / not digitised yet. Still, lots to enjoy. Ben

There are some wonderful clear pictures on there. Thanks for sharing it, bk. There are some lovely pictures of Radford which is one of my interests and lots of the city. Are there particular newspaper dates you are concentrating on?

Gosh yes, the memories too. So much of the generation that I'm part of is recorded either on paper or on electronic devices, the likes of which were unknown to any previously.

Some really great new pictures popping up and some better versions of old favourites. Caution - some of those that came from Mirrorpix and other sources are incorrectly labelled and several are flipped left to right or even upside down. I'm holding off on keeping a list of the flaws because I've yet to find a way to systematically go through them. I've nothing to add to many of the modern photos eg the City of Culture sketch books and there are too many pages to load everything. I'm currently putting in random words to bring up shorter lists but it's not a great way to search. If the search criteria result in too many results the thing times you out.

Hi Ben. HNY. Looks like some of the recent additions have not uploaded correctly and are appearing just as thumbnails - like this one.

They're a different number Ben. The one the search function delivers is 49988 and tiny, whereas yours is 16459 and does work.

Hi Annewiggy I don't get much choice with what I get tbh - according to Reach Licensing (who manage the newspaper archives) they are slowly digitising what came in when the CT closed. Sadly, many glass plates were skipped before this happened, so many glaring omissions. The good news is that Arthur Cooper, newspaper photographer from the 1940s and 50s (who has a few images in the CT archive but mainly worked for the Coventry Standard), kept his archive. This is being digitsed atm and hopefully we'll move on it sometime this year.

Hi Helen I see it now. It seems Coventry Archives have uploaded the asset twice. My system won't present a thumbnail size within the SmartFrame, so we're getting the problem. If you search for 10 Gulson Road, you'll see the proper images. Ben

Dear all I’m putting this into the Cov Dig thread but admins may deem Richard Sadler needs his own thread. If so, please move this there. Through Photo Miners, I've been busy digitising a lot of Richard's negs and prints. At Xmas the City of Culture gave us the go ahead for three exhibitions at the Old Grammar School, starting Feb 8th. We're calling the exhibitions 'Pioneering Coventry: the post-war photography of Richard Sadler'. First up is Richard and the city, second Richard and Courtaulds and finally Richard and the cathedral. They'll run for about five weeks each, finishing at the end of May. Online exhibitions are here. More information on Richard Sadler. High resolution images yet to go onto Cov Dig and all prints will go into Coventry Archives this summer. Ben
