Wartime Hostels

I now live in Canada,but I was born in Coventry in the early 50's,in what was called the hostels.I believe it was like a row

of townhouses,and families who was in need of housing used them.I know they no longer exist,but the area of Lyndale Rd does.My question is.......Would anyone have info on these

hostels,or any books on them?As I cannot go back to see where

I was born,because they were torn down years ago,it would be

nice to read about them.Thanks for any help.

Type virtualmuseum into google, and that will bring you to a Coventry-based website. Go to WW2 hostels - there are details of the one you are looking for in the Whoberley section. No photograph, unfortunately, but a little bit of information which may be of interest.

You could try sending an Email to the local newspaper - Coventry Evening Telegraph. They occasionally run features with photographs of old Coventry, and they may be able to help.

Good luck with your search.
