Kings Road tenements WW2 attack

Categories: Tragedy

From Guinness Partnership History: "The biggest single loss of life at The Guinness Trust estates occurred in one night and at one estate – the 23 February 1944 at the Kings Road tenements. Bombers – likely heading to destroy the power station at nearby Lot’s Road – found the Guinness Trust Building as their target instead. Half of the 160 tenements were destroyed with the rest damaged. 59 people lost their lives that night, including Superintendent Caple and his wife."
