Close up of image 'lnwrcov3771' showing the Warwick Road bridge end of the goods yard with the stable blocks to the right. The openings in the wall of Coventry Goods No 1 Shed were accessed by wagon turntables located one on the inside running parallel to the outside wall and on three others, each on a siding outside the shed running parallel to the shed. The guards van is located on the siding furthest away from the building. The opening in the wall on the left are thought to the result of years of wear caused by the ropes attached to a wagon and linked off an adjacent capstan in order to rotate the wagon 90 degrees as can be seen in image 'lnwrcs1498' of such an operation at Curzon Street goods yard. See image 'lnwrcov2769a' for a plan of the goods yard. Smoke can be seen drifting up from a chimney adjacent to the goods depot's mess room, a timber structure, an internal view being seen in image'lnwrcov592'.
