Steven Orland's Coventry, Now & Then

Broadgate viewed from Hertford Street



If we look out of the small alleyway now linking Hertford Street into Broadgate, we can see that Broadgate is a pedestrianised area but back in 1892 it was a thriving shopping street. The picture in the centre shows what it looked like back in 2005 before they removed the silly tent above Lady Godiva's statue. Thank goodness the tent finally disappeared in 2008.
