1940s Bomb Damage Builder Building Site Construction Council Flats People Work Workmen London County Council Rebuilding


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in the history of Millbank Estate, located in the heart of Greater London. The image showcases the diligent efforts of workers as they repair Ruskin House, one of twelve blocks of flats on the estate that suffered bomb damage during World War II. Constructed by the London County Council in the early 20th century, Millbank Estate stands as a testament to architectural excellence and urban planning. Its enduring presence is a reminder of its historical significance and contribution to London's landscape. In this snapshot from the 1940s, we witness an elevated view of Ruskin House amidst ongoing reconstruction. Builders and workmen can be seen meticulously restoring this iconic building back to its former glory. Their dedication and resilience reflect not only their commitment but also symbolize the spirit of post-war rebuilding that prevailed throughout Britain. Today, these blocks still stand tall, having received listed status in 1970. This recognition further emphasizes their cultural value and ensures their preservation for future generations to appreciate. As we gaze upon this photograph, we are transported back in time to witness firsthand how communities came together after adversity struck. Thanks to Historic England's Ministry of Works for preserving this invaluable piece capturing an important chapter in Millbank Estate's rich history – a visual testament to human perseverance and determination against all odds.
