blitzkid1939: The block of flats in which we all grew up...Aston House in the immediate foreground in centre of the pic facing onto the Wandsworth Road, London, England in probably early 1945. Some of The bomb-flattened houses can be seen just above in centre of the photo. The Projectile Factory (making ball-bearings and armaments for the war effort) was a target for the German V1 and V2 rocket bombs but not one of the bombs ever hit the factory.The electric trams were still running till about 1953 when the tar setts were taken up and burnt by local residents helping to cause the "yellow-brown" smog of the next two years.
