YourSay: PicOfThePast.

MRS F OATES, of Edgehill Place, Tile Hill, asks: "Did Dr Who visit Coventry?"

She said: "This photo of Greyfriars Green was taken by my father about 50 years ago when police boxes were still in use.

"It was taken before the ring road was built from the Queens Road end of the park. The magnificent evergreen Holm oak behind the police box and the cherry trees can still be seen.

"The building just seen between the cherry trees may be 27 Warwick Row which runs down the side of the park, and the chimney pot on the extreme left, I think, is on the back of the building where Loveitts Estate Agents are at the end of the row."
