On 7 September 1940, the Blitz began in earnest. The City and the East End bore the brunt of the bombing but other parts of London and the south-east were also severely affected. The National Gallery was hit by bombs nine times between October 1940 and April 1941. The worst occasion was on 12 October 1940 – a high explosive bomb fell on the Gallery totally destroying the room where the Raphaels had hung just before the war.

This is how St. Bride's Church in London appeared during the fire-blitz, Dec. 29, 1941. When air raiders showered incendiary bombs on the British capital. Flames lick around the base of the church's wedding cake spire after the roof of the church (at left) had collapsed.
