William Morris Building
The message above seems straight forward
until you see the sign on the wall opposite (below).
Spot the difference between these two ghost signs :).
The William Morris Building, now part of Coventry University,
has a most interesting history. The University added
two floors in early 2000. Before that in early 1900's
ARNO cars and motorcycles were built here.
After that HOTCHKISS ET CIE produced 50,000 machine guns
during WWI and then produced engines for Morris cars.
Morris took over and the premises became MORRIS ENGINES LIMITED in 1923.
By 1930 NUFFIELD MECHANISATIONS produced armaments during WW2.
After the war it became the
Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance.

The arrows (below) show where
the two ghost signs are located (with their conflicting information).
I enjoyed trooping out in cold today searching
for the sign below. I was really surprised when
my husband spotted a second sign. Well done, that man!
