Broadway School c. 1928

Earlsdon School c. 1923

The two photographs below (together with the seating plan) were given to the Earlsdon Research Group by Ken Gupwell, September 2018.  Ken’s father, Walter Gupwell, who appears on both photographs, went on to work in various car factories in Coventry.  He lived with his parents at 72 Moor Street until that house was destroyed by a bomb direct hit during the war.  They then moved to 68 Moor Street.  Walter’s grandparents lived at 27 Providence Street.

If you recognise anyone in the photos, or if you have any old photos of Earlsdon or Broadway Schools that you would like to share with us, please get in touch.
