Now incorporating The Sudbury Hill Harrow and Wherever End Times

Thursday, September 04, 2003


In reference to your article dated Saturday, June 14, 2003, Campaign for restoration of ironwork scrapped in the war, and the question "Which Cinema did the debris land on"* could it have been the Palace or Odeon in Chamberlayne Rd?

* Excerpt: Debris from the blast was blown into the air and landed as far away as our own dear Willesden where "it fell among people coming out of a cinema."

That sounds right, as Chamberlayne Road is the closest part of Willesden to Queens Park. The statement about debris falling among people coming out of a cinema came from a book about Queens Park. Unfortunately I cannot quote you "chapter and verse" as I no longer have a copy of the book.
