Description

A compilation of images of Broadgate, Coventry, starting with some old engravings and ending with an image from 1946. The video also remembers the I.R.A. bomb attack on 25/8/1939 which killed 5 people and injured many more. Just over a year later, the "heart of Coventry" was effectively destroyed during the blitz of 14/15 November 1940. Once again, thanks to Rob for allowing me to pool resources on this one. Visit his "Historic Coventry" website for more information on Broadgate: http://www.historiccoventry.co.uk/nowandthen/nowandthenbroadgate.php and for a detailed account of the I.R.A. bomb attack: http://www.historiccoventry.co.uk/articles/s-shaw.php
