For clarity - the identification of the location was by me - I didn't take the photo!

I was wondering if there are any photos at all of Spa Mansions, please. Both my grandmother and father were born there and their first flat became inhabitable following bombing in October 1940. They moved to another part of the building but had barely moved in when they were bombed out again on 10 May 1941. They lost everything as there was no water for the fireman to put the fire out. I have a copy of the architects drawings but would dearly love to see a photo.
Disabled veterans learn new crafts at a factory on the Old Kent Road London circa 1919 Mr F Jackson who lost one arm and Mr H Grinter DCM MM who lost. Not sure but I assume a leg or legs, brave men whose lives were changed for ever. LESS WE FORGET!
