About Keeping Up Appearances, they linked in google maps were some of the show was taped one being 'Onslows and Daisys house in Coventry UK
but look at the building at the end of Mitchell Ave. (zoom in) It would be interesting to find out more about that building (a backward C) a school perhaps?

Familiar with how to mark stuff in google maps
but the shape is so distinctive, be sure to check the school's
URL of the pics 'from the ground'.

And the UK doesn't come to mind when you think of modern or googie style buildings, ya think 'cozy country cottages' or georgian or tudor mansions.

Oh, sorry. I was up early. I have no idea how to mark stuff.
I've only recently been searching google maps. (for work)
I was just testing myself and actually enjoyed the 'search'.
Didn't mean to be smart a**. I was just trying to figure it out...
