    I went to this school in the 1950s! It is now a traffic island, a tiny patch of greenery, but it seemed huge to me as a reluctant 5-year-old. Thank you very much for uploading this whole collection of Bombardment photos. I am writing on the 100th anniversary of it and I have just discovered that Theo. Jones, the first soldier to be killed on home soil, lived at 44, Ashgrove Avenue. Later on, I lived 3 doors away for 12 years or so and hadn't a clue. Thanks again, Jim F.
