Sorry but I never got round to finding where she lived. As I know her name (which I don't want to reveal publicly) I could find her address and so possibly give the street name. She died nearly 30 years back (her husband, who I can just recall, died very many years before that). They had a son but I don't know if he is still alive.
Of course ,there were other streets further down Armley Rd .which were bombed and she could have lived in one of those. But, it would be interesting to find out where she lived.

We moved from Moorland Road, Hyde Park to Ilkley in 1940 as my folks were apparently worried that Leeds would be severely bombed. As it happened there was some damage less than a mile away - numbers 4/6/8/10 Cardigan Road were badly damaged in 1942. I showed this picture a couple of years ago to some new students who were moving in to number 4 at the start of their studies and they were just astonished. The rebuilding of the houses had altered their appearance a little but not too much.

There's nothing like keeping the past alive - it makes us relieved to reflect that any bad times have gone, and happy to relive all the joyful and fascinating experiences of our own and other folks' earlier days.
