Bomb Damage at Lime Street. This photo was taken the morning after the most severe attack of the London Blitz. A high-explosive bomb struck Lime Street, by Leadenhall Street, at 12.50am on 11 May 1941. A sign for The National Bank lies amongst the rubble. That night marked the last of the major bombing attacks on London for the next three years. Police Constables Arthur Cross and Fred Tibbs documented the destruction of this street and across the City, as they had done throughout the campaign.
