Hello Shady Lady. Sorry to correct you on this one but the first bomb dropped was on No.16 Alkham Road, then it bombed Dynevor Road, then Neville Road and Chesholm Road were hit. Its final strafing hit Cowper Road, Allen Road and Shakespeare Walk. The Zeppelin LZ38 then moved across to bomb the Hoxton and Shoreditch areas.
