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 industries.

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.
