My grandfather Frank Michell was a drapery assistant in a shop possibly Tontine Street,. My dad used to talk about bombing when he would've been a small love to find out which shop it was.

If it was in Tontine Street Margaret, the shop could have been Gosnold's, which was badly bombed drapery shop. However, I don't see your Grandfather's name on the list of killed or injured, so if that was the shop, I can only assume he wasn't working that day.
There is an account of the Air Raid here: [] and a list of the injured here: []
