About this object

This image shows heavy damage on the corner of Strand Street and James Street which was bombed on 3 and 4 May 1941. In the centre of the picture an ARP warden can be seen inspecting a fire in a destroyed building while people look on. There were 1.4 million ARP wardens in Britain, most of who were part-time volunteers who had full-time day jobs. They patrolled the streets and supervised people getting safely into air raid shelters.
