heard that there is a memorial site in tontine street that used to be a pub, got bombed in wwII?? Apparently there's a plaque on this site. Is it the little triangle at the end where the road splits?? (heading uphill from the amusements, etc.)[/quote]
This shelter was erected in a shopping and residential area destroyed by bombing and shelling during the second world war 1939-45. The cost was met by a gift from the lord mayor of London's air raid distress fund and from sums given during the war by the peoople of New Zealand and local residents"
