AD/7 Wartime Incidents Photographic Album

The devastation of the City of Plymouth began on Saturday 6th of July, when the first of many air raids took place reducing the city centre to rubble.

Stanley Goodman1 tells us "Throughout these raids the civilian population went about their daily chores from cooking in a biscuit tin under a fire, to walking to work admist the rubble often detouring because of an unexploded bomb."

This wonderful collection of photographs were taken by the city police in the aftermath of those heavy bombing raids and exist as a perfect testament to the enormous devastation experienced by the city and it's residents.
