Bomb Damage at 79-81 Aldersgate Street towards Barbican. Rosenberg Davies Tailors, Krieger David Silk Merchants, a jewellers and a tobacconists were among the premises lining Aldersgate Street. On 1 July 1944 the buildings were struck, probably by a V-1 flying bomb, during a raid on the City. Thousands of these bombs targeted London from June 1944. Police Constables Arthur Cross and Fred Tibbs photographed the devastated street as rescue teams and wardens scrambled to find any trapped survivors.
