Aftermath of the Stainer Street bombing, the arch was destroyed. Railway arches were a popular place of shelter but were more dangerous than they appeared to be. This picture shows rescuers searching the rubble at the railway arch at Stainer Street near London Bridge. The arch was destroyed in a raid on 17 February 1941 and 68 people were killed.
