London Blitz Photo - 1940 Think we had it tough in North America during the Second World War? We could sleep in our beds at night reasonably certain we weren't going to be blown to smithereens. No so our British allies. This remarkable color photo from October 14, 1940 shows the effects of a typical nighttime air raid targetting London. (The Brits referred to it as "the Blitz.") A large German bomb blew a hole in a street near a bus stop, penetrated through to the Belham underground (subway) station below ground, and killed 68 people who thought they were out of harm's way. Later that same night, a bus travelling in blackout conditions--and thus unaware of the enormous hole in the street--drove into the gaping crater.
