his little piece of Coventry history has been sent in by Elaine Tomlins, whose Dad can be seen in the back row of this choir, third from the right. His name was Lewis Barker and he died in 1972 aged 78 years.
Lewis' younger brother, Rowland, is on the far right back row, but Elaine does not recognise anyone else in the photo.
The choir pictured belongs to St. Michael's and this portrait was probably taken some time before 1910 - still a few years before the church was elevated to 'cathedral' status in 1918.
If anyone can add something to fill in some gaps for Elaine, please contact me with any information you have, however small.
