People salvage their belongings after being bombed out of their homes in Lydia Street, off White Horse Lane, Stepney, September 1940

Salvaging belongings after being bombed - 1940.

Because of its proximity to London's docks the area, now more usually called Stepney, received more than its share of attention from the Luftwaffe. The Battle of Britain reached its climax in the first half of September 1940 and it was on the first day of that month that 15 Lydia Street was all but destroyed by enemy bombs.

Lydia Street was located along White Horse Lane just north of the modern Shandy Street.
