Original map first published c.1920. Republished July 2016.
World war one map, 1914 - 1918, illustrating, with approximate accuracy, where the bombs fell in the many air raids on London during the war. It is based upon official information, with-held until after the cessation of hostilities, and upon supplementary data specifically supplied by the Fire Brigades of the London area. Each dot on the map indicates where a bomb fell.

Many public buildings were hit, including the Central Telegraph Office, Charing Cross Hospital, Benchers' Buildings of Grays Inn, Examination Hall of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, Hall and Chapel of Lincoln's Inn, Ministry of Munitions, Embankment Gardens, Royal Academy Buildings, Somerset House. From the map it will be seen that narrow escapes were experienced by both Westminster Abbey and St. Paul's Cathedral.
All prices include VAT and Free UK Shipping.
We make our own frames from moulding hand finished in our workshops. The standard finish is a distressed black with a gold slip inserted for the larger maps.
We finish the moulding in two other colours, Antique Red and Antique Green. These colours can be used on any of our prints or maps, both reproductions and originals, but have been chosen specifically to suit some of the antique prints and illustrations.
Some of the maps are very big so for weight, shipping and safety reasons we use 3mm acrylic as the glazing material.
