n these pages, I have attempted to stand in the footprints of photographers who pictorially documented our area of Coventry many decades ago. Wherever possible, I have tried to recreate the same direction and perspective that is recorded in the original shots, so that a direct comparison can be made between the views that we now recognise and those seen by our ancestors.
For the benefit of those of you not familiar with all the places on these pages, I have placed links next to each Heading labelled Camera No. 1, 2, etc. Clicking these will reveal a map showing where each photograph was taken from. Clicking on the correspondingly numbered camera icon will return you to the page you came from. You may wish to use this map as an index to this "now and then" section, although unfortunately, a small number of places are outside the area covered by the map.
