1950s

Now let's jump forward another couple of decades to the 1950s. Gone was the rubble, and in were the buildings forming the "brave new world" of post-war Coventry. Once again, this gave rise to many new postcards being published - especially the all new Broadgate and the Precinct. Some people might be surprised to recognise a few features that saw little change since the pre-war reconstruction.

Hovering your mouse cursor over the arrowed areas will change the photo in the corner to reflect what would have been in view at each place.
