20th March 1944: the Merton Road bombing

20 Mon. Very cool, dreary, cloudy day. Cycled to every Boots' branch about here to buy something for Ciss but without success; but I bought several other things, fish at Wimbledon and lentils and haricot beans at Morden, also a bulb for the bedroom light in Ciss' room which broke down last night. Merton Road is now open again to the public, it has been closed since the bombing on 19th Feb.; great damage was done and there are open spaces previously occupied by the Labour Exchange, a large garage and many large houses; few of the shops in this road are doing business.

Note from 2014 blogger. Fred, quietly writing his modest daily record with pen and ink... what would he have thought about his readership in 2014? Here's an analysis of viewers over the past week. (Left click image once for large size OR right click and select in a new tab.)
