King Edward Road

This picture was taken looking along King Edward Road with blast damage to Third Avenue in the distance.

The above picture by Donald Stride, is now in the Bath Library collection.

The houses were badly damaged, but the public shelters survived intact.

Three bombs landed in King Edward Road:
 HE1068 struck St Bartholomew's Church (pictures here);
 HE1070 struck a terrace of houses; and HE1071 landed in the roadway causing blast damage. The photographs above show the combined damage of these two.

King Edward Road today, from the same viewpoint as the top picture.
