St Pauls CXP01_01_086

St Pauls Cathedral, St Pauls Churchyard, City of London. A view looking south-west across a bomb damaged landscape towards the Church of St Verdast-alias-Foster with St Pauls Cathedral beyond.
The Church of St Verdast-alias-Foster was rebuilt by Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London in 1666. In the Second World War it was gutted by fire during the Blitz in 1940-41 and was later rebuilt after the war with work starting in 1953. St Pauls Cathedral survived the bombing raids but other buildings in the area were completely destroyed by high explosives and incendiary bombs

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the aftermath of destruction and resilience in the heart of London. St Paul's CXP01_01_086 showcases a poignant view looking southwest across a bomb-damaged landscape towards the Church of St Verdast-alias-Foster, with the iconic St Paul's Cathedral standing tall in the background. The Church of St Verdast-alias-Foster holds a remarkable history. Originally rebuilt by Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London in 1666, it faced further devastation during World War II when it was gutted by fire during the Blitz in 1940-41. However, like a phoenix rising from ashes, this resilient church was reconstructed once again after the war, with restoration work commencing in 1953. While St Paul's Cathedral miraculously survived bombing raids during both world wars, surrounding buildings were not as fortunate. The image serves as a stark reminder of the devastating impact caused by high explosives and incendiary bombs on this historic area. Photographer Charles William Prickett skillfully captured this momentous scene for Historic England. Through his lens, we are transported to an era marked by loss and destruction but also characterized by determination and rebirth. This print stands as a testament to London's enduring spirit and its ability to rebuild even amidst adversity.
