Bomb Damage Maps 1939-1945

London County Council

Charting the impact of the Blitz on London, 1939-45, this richly illustrated book records the buildings and streets reduced to smoke and rubble, with 110 facsimile hand-coloured maps of a ‘lost London’, supported by archival photographs and statistical tables.
As a key record of the attack, the London County Council (LCC) Bomb Damage Maps represent destruction on a huge scale. The full set of maps is made up of 110 hand-coloured 1:2500 Ordnance Survey base sheets originally published in 1916 but updated by the LCC to 1940. Because they use the 1916 map, they give us a glimpse of a 'lost London', before post-war redevelopment schemes began to shape the modern city. The colouring applied to the maps records a scale of damage to London's built environment during the war.

Hardback, 288 pages, 110 maps and 69 black & white photographs.
14½" x 10¾".
£48.00
