Kirby House

16 Little Park Street, Coventry


Built around 1700, this is a fine example of a City Centre
building only slightly damaged during WWII.  


Oh how I wish I could have moved those railings which don't fit in with the
 Georgian architecture and modern day Zebra Crossing.


There is so much construction going on in Coventry, I could
hardly believe it today.  The photo below is of the Council House,
just down the street from Kirby House.  Looks like they are about
ready to take down the fencing soon.  Hooray.

Even with all its modernity, Coventry seems a magical place.

It could be, Petrea. There are certainly some hidden gems :).

Such an elegant place to live and unbelievable that it is 300 years old.

Looks much like colonial era Georgians in Philadelphia, Boston....

Can you just imagine a whole row of these beauties Lauren, that would have been a marvelous sight! Sounds like Coventry is as busy building wise as Perth these days, it's a wee bit worrying n'est pas!

That Council House is gorgeous. I hope you show it again after the construction stuff is gone.
