WORLD WAR 2

The Blitz 1940
The City suffered badly as bombing raids began during the Second World War. Churches, livery company halls and other historic buildings were destroyed. Despite initial resistance, London Underground agree that 79 of its stations could be used as bomb shelters during air raids and spending the night in a tube station became routine for many Londoners.
