Some modern (2010) views of the incident area, taken from the same direction as those 70 years ago, are also included (photographs by John Shepherd).

Blitz victim
A detail from the London County Council Bomb Damage map series (reproduced with permission from the London Metropolitan Archive) is also included for those killed in Islington in WW2 where an incident address is known. These are colour-coded, with light damage (shattered windows/fallen plaster) shown in yellow through to total destruction shown in black.
