Picture shows residents of Aldborough Grove, in Hull, Yorkshire, after an air raid

Picture shows residents of Aldborough Grove, in Hull, Yorkshire, after an air raid.
Casualties were light as the shelters were good.
The Hull Blitz was the bombing campaign that targeted the English port city of Kingston upon Hull by the German Luftwaffe during the Second World War.
Large-scale attacks took place on several nights throughout March 1941, resulting in over 200 deaths. The most concentrated attacks were on the nights of 7/8 and 8/9 May 1941, resulting in just under 400 deaths, and another large-scale attack took place in July 1941 with 143 fatalities.
The city spent more than 1, 000 hours under alert during raids from 19 June 1940 to 1945, with almost 1, 200 people in the city killed as a result of the bombing.

EDITORS COMMENTS
This powerful print captures the resilience of the residents of Aldborough Grove in Hull, Yorkshire, after an air raid during the Second World War. Despite being targeted by the German Luftwaffe during the Hull Blitz, casualties were relatively light due to their well-built shelters. The devastating bombing campaign on Kingston upon Hull resulted in over 200 deaths throughout March 1941. The most concentrated attacks occurred on the nights of 7/8 and 8/9 May 1941, claiming nearly 400 lives. Another large-scale assault took place in July that year, causing an additional 143 fatalities. This city endured more than a thousand hours under alert from June 1940 to 1945, with approximately 1,200 people losing their lives as a result of relentless bombings. The photograph serves as a poignant reminder of those dark times and pays tribute to the courage and strength displayed by ordinary citizens facing unimaginable hardships. It stands as a testament to their unwavering spirit amidst chaos and destruction. Taken around February 21st, 1941 by Mirrorpix (not affiliated with any company), this image is part of Memory Lane Prints' collection that preserves historical moments for future generations to learn from and remember.
