John C. Carroll has donated a photograph to Dublin City Archives called ‘Reflection on the North Strand 1941’ in memory of those lives affected in any way by the bombing (death, trauma or relocation).  Carroll describes the image as follows: “It is showing the North Stand today (the streetscape has not really recovered from the bombing) with the flat complexes which are at right angles to the North Strand itself (as if turning away from it).  It has a large black shadow in the shape of a cross running diagonally across the photo to a spot very close to where the bomb was dropped.”
