Shrapnel from bomb


Shrapnel from bomb
BGS image ID: P711014
This photograph shows shrapnel and other debris from a German bomb which damaged the Geological Museum at Exhibition Road, London at 11:47pm on 10 September 1940. Edward Bailey in his book Geological Survey of Great Britain records that the bomb "broke half the windows" and a later near miss in 1941 "completed out deglazing."
