Publishers Description: The Illustrated History of Coventry's Suburbs shows, through a fine selection of photographs from the city's archives, how the countryside, farms and villages developed into the urban streets, residential areas, shopping districts and industrial estates that are so familiar today. In the course of the last 150 years, the outskirts of the city have been transformed, and they have expanded, in a way that would astonish Coventry residents of just a few generations ago. In this detailed and fully illustrated account, David McGrory offers a concise history of each district, but he also features local anecdotes and myths and folklore, and he remembers remarkable, sometimes bizarre episodes and notable individuals who played their part in the story. Recalled in his account are the origins and development of districts as diverse as Gosford Green, Whoberly, Keresley, Wyken, Willenhall, Foleshill, Ash Green, Stoke Heath, Binley, Pinley, Earlsdon and Spon End.
