Bomb Damage at Upper Thames Street. After 35 consecutive days of bombing from the beginning of the London Blitz, seven daytime attacks took place on 11 October, one of which reached central London. The usual night attack then began, the heaviest raids taking place between 7.40 and 11.00pm. At 10.55pm, a high-explosive bomb struck outside No 1 Upper Thames Street, leaving a large crater. Police Constables Arthur Cross and Fred Tibbs photographed the devastated street the following morning.
