Devastation remaining in the City, 1955: northward on Basinghall Street behind the Guildhall.
Much of the City of London looked like this, 10 years after World War Two. Contrast this view with 2012 - or with scene by the Stock Exchange taken on the same day (TQ3281 : Throgmorton Street, outside the Stock Exchange, Summer 1955).
