Site: Salvation Army Ronalds Road (2 memorials)

N5, Ronalds Road, 1, Citadel Court

The designer of the building clearly had the 'citadel' concept in mind. Strangely, some of these foundation plaques have had their inscriptions filled in (and it looks deliberate) so they are now more or less illegible. Conversely the bricks above the western plaques still bear the ghostly shadow of the letters, long gone, just legible as "Salvation Army Citadel".

All we have found on the Salvation Army Citadel in Ronalds Road, is a reference for the Charles Booth survey of London and another in 1917.
