The Imperial War Museum has released rare colour photos of London during the Second World War.
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Blitz, the museum has revealed unique footage covering London life, from famous landmarks to everyday scenes, in full colour.
The photos reveal how the Blitz, which took place between September 1940 and May 1941, affected the capital city, from the patriotic hoarding on Nelson’s Column to the dramatic ruins around St Paul’s Cathedral.
These amazing photos are part of a larger exhibition called ‘Horrible Histories: Blitzed Brits’, which you can discover in Manchester’s Imperial War Museum until April 2016.
Take a look at these rare photographs here and tell us if you’ll be going to the exhibition.
