Mapping the London Blitz.

The London Metropolitan Archives has extended it exhibition until March 2012. The exhibition is based on a series of bomb damage maps, created by the London County Council (LCC) that documented the destruction caused by  enemy fire.  Plotted, building by building, these maps use a colour code to show the extent of the damage. They cover the 117 square miles for which they were responsible. This includes some of the former Kent locations that became part of the LCC. Details can be found at Mapping the Blitz
