The PSV Circle has made available its photo collection, or at least thumbnail views of the images. You need to click on the link at the bottom of this page:
http://www.psv-circle.org.uk/PhotoServiceArchive.htm
then choose Section 1
then Operator Index
then England & Wales
then Municipals
then Coventry

There's also quite a few more modern Coventry buses if you choose Travel WM instead of Municipals.

Unfortunately the details of the image are not shown, you have to read the instructions on the first page above to find these, and it may turn out to be just a registration number.

Larger photos in this collection can now be viewed, albeit with a watermark. Here's an image of a pre-Fearnley bus, a 2 axle Maudslay ML7, number 60:

Note this is before the registration numbers were chosen to correspond with the fleet numbers.

What year would that have been taken as the Craven Arms has not yet been extended eastwards and a third gable end added?

The bus was new in 1932 and ran until 1945. However route 5 only terminated at Barker's Butts Lane up to November 1941. I believe at the start of the war, bus roofs were changed from cream to grey, but I'm not sure if this was applied to all older vehicles.

Well it's obviously pre-war as the building society behind the bus hasn't been blown to pieces yet! I think it was built around 1935 and aerial photos show the Craven Arms extension in 1937 so I'm guessing somewhere between those dates.
