I see a lot of boards that have this pin, but I've never seen it put in context. This is the side view of Harrods. The entrance in the lower right corner is one of the busiest entrances, being so near the tube exit. In 1983 just before Christmas the IRA planted a bomb just outside the entrance. The IRA made a phone call warning of the bomb, but it went off before the site could be cleared. Six people were killed and 90 injured.
