Coventry Pubs #7 - Litten Tree

1a Warwick Row
On a windy day in November, 2015.

Not every public house in Coventry is an architectural gem.
This is just a plain brick building located between the City Centre
and the Coventry Train Station.

When I was taking these photos it was the Zebra Crossing
I wanted to share.  I like them.  
Across the street in New Union Street
stands one of Coventry's 3 historic spires -

Sorry about all the text here.  
I just have to add something about the
yellow 'globe' atop the black and white pole.
It has a name, Belisha beacon, and a history too.
Always learning :). 

Hope your week is going well!!!

You've got lots of stuff and things about which to learn! And you have so many magnificent buildings there that one or two plain-Janes are OK. "Plain-Janes"? Is that sexist?

Still a few leaves clinging onto those trees.

The spire really catches my attention!

The light in that first shot is so nice! Have to go check out what the yellow globe is now. :)

Tanya Breese said...

I understand those lights on the poles but, I never knew what they were called. I love learning new things on my blog visits.

The zebra crossing was the first thing I saw, too. Fascinating reading about that yellow globe thingy, which regrettably will still be called a yellow globe thingy because my memory is not what it used to be.
