Manchester Blitz Piccadilly panorama 1940

A dramatic photo of the Manchester Blitz of December 1940. This photo was withheld from publication. It shows complete devastation with only a token hose on the left of the picture. It portrayed to the enemy that Manchester was at its mercy - so it was censored.
