History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

London by Moonlight

A stroll around London on a brightly moonlight night in 1940. Beautiful and somewhat eerie. 

Piccadilly Circus (if you are familiar with the place, note the sandbagged, boarded and postered statue of Eros). Source

The Tower Bridge. Source

And another view. Source

Trafalgar Square with the Nelson Monument, adorned with wartime posters. Source

The Houses of Parliament. Source

A blacked out Trafalgar Square, with the National Gallery to the left and the church St Martin's in the Field centre. Source
