B Is For Building...

....one of three Georgian town houses in Coventry.


The sign outside tells the whole story.


I love to imagine how this City must have looked
before World War II.


Priory Row is just behind Coventry Cathedral. 

Participating in ABC Wednesday

It's Wednesday.  Hard to believe.  Sunshine today but
the dreaded rain is starting just about now.
Ugh!

Beautiful...so nice it was restored!

It certainly IS a grand house! I know about how most of Coventry was so badly bombed by the Germans in WW2 - Churchill's decision must have made him so sad to have to sacrifice this city for the better good.

So heartening to know that a place like this was restored after war damage! They did a lovely job. And very sweet the sign is there to tell the story to all who pass by (including those of us in blogland:).

I visited Coventry as a student and my visit to the cathedral was amazing. A beautifully modern and appropriate building - the stained glass was so awesome.

Got to say that is one delightful building! I agree that it would be nice to have seen the area prior to the war. What a price we pay to gain power or advantage over one another. I used to think humans would learn, now I'm not so sure.

Wonderful that something that old remains in Coventry.

Half of the fun of doing a blog for me is reading your comments. YOU have really interesting things to say. Thank YOU :).

Definitely beautiful!!! How sad that more of those beautiful buildings were destroyed in the war...I've never really known just how much damage was done back then...what a tragedy.
