Site: Columbia Market air raid shelter memorial (1 memorial)

E2, Old Market Square, Rose Garden, Ravenscroft Park

This small garden is well-hidden. It's to the east of the tower Sivill House, that's the building in the background of our photo. 

We were alerted to this memorial by Geoff Twist, whose Columbia Rd War Memorial Group, had this stone made and erected. Spitalfields Life have a good post, with great pictures of the buildings.
