Old photo of library (postcard):

Nothing in my collection yet. Midway down this long webpage is an old picture of flooding in Nuneaton. The caption reads: “The building sticking out into the roadway is the Carnegie free lending library with the new Council House just in the course of erection, albeit work has been temporarily suspended for the duration of the flood. The Carnegie library will be pulled down in 1933 when the council house has been completed and its contents transferred to the former council offices and fire station in Queens Road.”

A later card on the same page has the caption: “Coton Road, Nuneaton c. 1910. The police station on the left and the lending library on the right. This stands where Nuneaton town hall is today and was demolished in 1933.”
