St Mary Aldermanbury CXP01_01_090

St Giles Cripplegate, Fore Street, City of London. A view looking north-west across a bomb damaged landscape towards St Giles Cripplegate Church in the distance with St Mary Aldemanbury on the right of the foreground.
St Mary Aldermanbury which was rebuilt by Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London in 1666 was later gutted by fire during the Blitz in 1940. The remains of the walls were removed and rebuilt in Fulton, Missouri in 1966 as a memorial to Winston Churchill, although the footings of the church remain on the original site in a public garden

Blitz Bomb Damage Destruction Loss And Loss And Destruction Medieval Parish Church Second World War Stuart


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a poignant scene of resilience and history. In the foreground, we see the remains of St Mary Aldermanbury, a parish church that endured both the Great Fire of London in 1666 and the devastating Blitz during World War II. The church, originally rebuilt by Christopher Wren after the fire, was tragically gutted by fire again in 1940. Looking beyond the bomb-damaged landscape, our gaze is drawn towards St Giles Cripplegate Church standing tall in the distance. It serves as a reminder of strength amidst destruction and symbolizes hope for rebuilding. What makes this image even more remarkable is that it showcases not only architectural history but also transatlantic connections. After its destruction during WWII, St Mary Aldermanbury's walls were painstakingly dismantled and transported to Fulton, Missouri. There they were reconstructed as a memorial to Winston Churchill in 1966. While only footings remain on its original site in a public garden within City of London's bustling streetscape today, this photograph immortalizes both loss and preservation. Charles William Prickett skillfully captures an evocative moment frozen in time – one that invites reflection on human tenacity and honors those who have fought to rebuild what was lost throughout history.
