Spot The Difference

Earl Street, Coventry
The Earl of Mercia (centre) and Coventry Council House (right)

The photo above was taken last week and
the one below was taken May, 2015.

 The bridge was removed in late April, 2017.
The link bridge was constructed in 1970 to
connect the historic council house
to civic centre buildings to the left.

PS.  The building in the middle, straight ahead, is a pub :).

Interesting. The bridge didn't match the buildings very well so I guess it's okay.

Why was the bridge removed. It's removal certainly cleans up the scene. That must be some pub! And how is it that you know so much about it? Hmmm?

Living history in daily use!

Looks much nicer without, doesn't it? Perhaps the council doesn't employ enough people who need to cross the road now.

The area looks much better without it. I wonder why they took it down, that had to be a big job.

It does seem better without it.

For information - The bridge is no longer required. The building it is connected to has been sold to Coventry University and I expect it may be demolished. Whilst the Council House building will remain (thank goodness) the "workers" are soon to move to new offices near the train station. More about that later.

Lowell - Oh yes, it do know that pub :).
