Reading in the Morning



The photos were taken a few years ago now but show an area of Reading which was devastated by bombs on the 10th Feb 1943. Looking at it now it's hard to believe people died here  


The statue of Queen Victoria looking towards the station did not escape unscathed, she lost a finger in the incident

  1. Such an interesting and brutal time of history there. Looking back at the photos from the day of the attack and now, it's hard to imagine such a thing happened. Thank you for remembering the day and the fallen.

  2. It certainly looks peaceful. Queen Victoria would not have been amused.
