The Blitz

Blitz bombing damage near St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

The City of London, including the area around St Paul’s was bombed during the night raid of 29/30 December 1940. Somehow the cathedral survived, and went on to become a symbol of Britain standing strong against the Nazis.

  1. Incredible photograph! Saw some recently taken from St Paul’s looking down at the surrounding area just after the war. The whole area completely raised to the ground.

      I’d love to see those.
      I used to live on Fleet Street, so I’ve walked around that area a bit. There’re definitely a lot of new buildings (not all of them pretty!) now.
