Again we see an old photograph of a Coventry street which is not at all recognisable to present day visitors. Here in 1914 Hertford Street was a busy shopping street carrying traffic - although generally not the sort of traffic we expect nowadays - horses and carts would still have outnumbered the newly invented motor vehicles!
One click on the image and we can see that in 2022 little remains to compare with the view a century earlier. The spire of Holy Trinity and a few of the buildings on the right did survive the wartime bombing, but their modern facades disguise their original appearance. Since 1969, when Hertford Street was pedestrianised, there's been little chance of being run over by any kind of vehicle, horse drawn or otherwise.
