Does anyone remember the above address in St Pancras Somers Town. It is just off Eversholt St around the corner from Doric Way which was Drummond Street and Church way nw1 In the 60/70s it was an Evening News van depot now it is some police vehicle place. However my Dad and uncle climbed up on the roof I would imagine in the 1940s and my uncle fell through a skylight and had an emergency op to remove his spleen .........however just heard it was an armoury or artillery factory, which would explain the interest by 2 young boys but my g.g grandmother( Mary Ann Bird nee Odgers) lived in Church way 1880s has on my g.grandfathers (William Bird) bc her occupation as cartridge maker. Any idea on what this building was or how to find out thank you???
