My neighbour has pictures of this place after it was bombed but is trying to find one of the school as it was. Would anyone have one as he's been to all the usual places to look?

Has he tried the London Metropolitan Archives? I tried to find out about these schools a few years ago as my Uncle Fred went to one in Kennington after having TB, but couldn't find any information.

Hello there,
Just read your post re: regarding a photo after the bombing in WW2 of Lynton Road.
That would have been my Great Grandmothers (Emily HOOKERS)and Grandmothers (Ellen PAGE) house no. 313 Lynton Road. It received a direct hit just days before my parents were due to be married from there. They lost all their wedding presents, stored up and donated rationed food from friends and family, wedding cake and my mothers wedding dress.

Would it be possible please to have a copy of the photo. If so I would be greatly indebted to you.
Thank you
Alan T
