One hundred years of publishing news and
comments on Coventry and Warwickshire. February 9th 1991 marked that historic
landmark for the Coventry Evening Telegraph.
The City of Coventry changed so much in the
period. Motors, aircraft, machine-tools came and with them workers and their
families from the four corners of the British Isles and from overseas. The city
grew in size in housing and shopping until a large part of it was devastated in
the Second World War. The Blitz and its effects have been chronicled elsewhere
but it led to a complete regeneration, of the city centre in particular.
Coventry's expansion continued until the 1980's which unfortunately saw massive
reductions of output and staff in companies involved in the engineering
The Coventry Evening Telegraph is proud of its achievements over the 100 years and is pleased to publish a pictorial record of the city and a flavour of the newspapers we have produced to record events and happenings.
