Not many colour photographs of bomb damage across the UK exist from the second world war. When they do crop up they immediately bring home the devastation caused. This street somewhere in Battersea/Clapham (going by Battersea Power Station in the background - note the power station had three chimneys at this time) shows the level of blast damage caused by the explosion. Sadly there is very little more information about the cause whether an HE bomb or V1 incident.
UPDATE: the street has been positively identified as Tennyson Street, Wandsworth.
