Bombed Houses near Euston Station.
This drawing reveals the extent of the damage, caused by a bomb during the Second World War, on houses near Euston Station. In the foreground are the remains of one house, while its neighbour has been partially destroyed with rooms now open to view. The walls are crumbling, windows have been broken and roof tiles have been pulled apart. The destruction is made more pronounced by the inclusion of the relatively untouched bed in the top room, which evokes a more mundane, everyday reality which has also been destroyed.




1940 AD - 1940 AD
