This is the mapped bomb census of Lon­don be­tween Oc­to­ber 1940 and June 1941. Click on one of the red sym­bols and a box re­veals the type of bomb, lo­ca­tion, source, present­day ad­dress and any fur­ther de­tails. You can also ex­plore con­tem­po­rary pho­to­graphs and peo­ple’s sto­ries as­so­ci­ated with the area, taken from the BBC’s Peo­ple’s War ar­chive ( bbc.co.uk/his­tory/ww2peo­pleswar). The de­fault ag­gre­gate view quickly gives you an idea of the sheer scale of the Blitz – zoom out and it rapidly turns into a sea of red. There’s an al­lied An­droid app that of­fers an Aug­mented Re­al­ity op­tion – us­ing your phone’s cam­era and GPS it dis­plays bombs that fell where you are stand­ing.
