Trinity Street from Broadgate

Camera No. 64

Remarkably, despite the devastation only a very short while earlier, and in the very near vicinity, nearly all of the buildings in this photograph survived the ravages of the Second World War intact. Even more remarkably, they also survived the vast redevelopments of subsequent post-war decades, and still stand here in the 21st century.

Click the image to get back to 2012. if you wish to see the images separately.

The older of these two pictures was not dated, but I believe it is possibly late 1940s, maybe even early 1950s, shortly before the new Owen Owen was built (completed in 1954). Half way down Trinity Street on the right can be seen the building from which Owen Owen was temporarily continuing its trade since the destruction of the three year old department store in November 1940. In 2012 that building is home to Cash Generators.

As part of the improvements made around Coventry's city centre for our part in the 2012 Olympics, the top end of Trinity Street was pedestrianised, with new lawns being laid - the overall result appearing rather pleasant in my opinion.
