An interesting map. I note that none of the shadow factories are shown on it. It is also interesting the the "Blitzkrieg Square Mile" of the city centre, that was bombed for 11 hours on the night of November 14, 1940 is not marked as a target area.

With kind regards

Also notice the whole of the west side of Maudslay Road is marked as a target including the Co-Op on the corner of Allesley Old Road!
