Steven Orland's Coventry, Now & Then

The Burges and Corporation Street



This next photograph was taken in 1927. It shows the bottom of the Burges, and the photographer was standing on the corner of Hales Street and Bishop Street by the Old Grammar School.

Burges & Corporation Street

With your mouse pointer over the picture, my photo in 2014 shows that these shops had to be demolished so that Corporation Street could be built in 1931.

Please click here if you wish to see the photo's separately.
