Postal vans are sent to Coventry
Coventry Transport Museum - postal exhibition

An exhibition tracing the history of different forms of transport used by the postal service over the past century is to open next month.

Rarely-seen vehicles and images from the Royal Mail's archive are to be displayed at Coventry Transport Museum.

The exhibition will feature photographs of an 1850s mail coach, BSA Bantam motorbikes and five-wheeled bicycles as well as a 1930s mobile post office.

The museum underwent a 7m revamp earlier this year.

New facilities include a commercial vehicle and motorcycle gallery and an education centre.
