London: Air Raid, 1917

Twisted metal, jagged wood and piles of rubble: the devastating aftermath of an air raid in London.

Non-Fiction 1917 4 mins

Overview

Scenes of devastation in Paternoster Buildings in the City of London after an air raid, probably courtesy of a military airship. The scene is uncannily similar to footage of the aftermath of WWII Blitz attacks, apart from the occasional horses and carts glimpsed in the background.
