London's archive of destruction
In the 1940s, the British government employed photographers and artists to chronicle the aftermath of German attacks.
As well as recording the destruction for official purposes, such as reconstruction, their work still manages to show their talent and artistic drives, according to Francis Marshall, curator of "Perspectives of Destruction: Images of London, 1940-44" at the Museum of London.
