Footnotes

  • Information received suggests these original Cuneo artworks were donated to Coventry City Police (which later became part of West Midlands Police) around the 1960s, or possibly as early as 1957, to mark the opening of Little Park Street Police Station, where they hung in the conference room for many years. Eventually they were loaned to the Coventry Transport Museum where they were presumably on display for some time before ending up in their store room for many years and then retrieved by the West Midlands Police Museum.

    After a successful Round 2 National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) bid in March 2020, West Midlands Police are currently working on delivering a project to convert Birmingham's Steelhouse Lane Lock-up into the new permanent home of the West Midlands Police Museum. The museum is scheduled to be relaunched in early 2022 with a significant focus on engagement and education, using policing stories to bring their heritage to life and share it with more people.
