Pool Meadow

Camera No. 60

Bearing in mind Coventry's current city centre, full of tarmac, conctrete, buses, the hustle-bustle of modern life.... who would've predicted this picture of serenity in the centre of one of Britain's principal cities, just two centuries earlier?

if you wish to see the images separately.

Engraved from a drawing by Henry Jeayes, this image was published in a well known book called The Beauties of England and Wales in 1809. The artist would have been sited not far from Swanswell Pool.
