  This photo, taken in about 1906 by the Express Photo Co, is reproduced from "The Coventry we have lost" by Albert Smith and David Fry. It shows the original Rose & Crown at the junction of Bell Green Road and Hall Green Road, apparently taking delivery of ale. First mentioned in 1832 as the setting for an inquest into the death of a chap called Brown, between 1871 and his death in 1884, the "Crown" was occupied by my gggrandfather, Edward Chaplin. The building, was replaced in 1958 with the current modern building set back further from the road.
