Hertford Square Coventry OP00980

Hertford Square, Coventry, West Midlands, 1953. John M Prest (1908-€“86), silver gelatin DOP (developing out paper) print. A van and lines of washing form a significant part of John Prest'€™s view of weavers'€™ housing in Hertford Square, Coventry in 1953. Prest was employed as a graduate apprentice in Coventry from 1952 to 1953 and his academic interest in domestic textile industries encouraged him to spend several years traveling the country to find and record weavers'€™ and other artisan houses. His photographs, mainly taken from streets and back alleys, show exactly what anyone could see for themselves if they cared to look, including traffic, pedestrians and other obstructions. The Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England acquired his collection in 1995.

Earthworks, Coventry 26735_031

Second World War air raid shelter in Coventry. In this photograph traces of a Second World War air raid shelter can still be seen in Radford Road recreation ground, Coventry. Although partly demolished after the war, the filled-in remains of the interconnected trenches, that formed part of the shelter, are indicated by dark rectangles of lusher grass growth. These trenches also appear to survive as slight depressions in the ground. The park is not far from the city centre and close to the site where the Daimler motor works once stood. The remains of this communal shelter illustrate one of the ways the wartime population was protected from air raids, but is also a poignant reminder of the aerial bombardment that Coventry endured during the conflict.
