Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery has recently accepted a small collection of photographs and reports relating to the Second World War into the collection.
The photographs were taken by Warwickshire County Police to record air raid damage caused by enemy action on the nights of 16th May 1941 and 24th June 1942 in Nuneaton town centre. These images provide a fascinating insight into the scale of devastation that was caused by the bombing. A selection of the photographs are displayed below with the location information, where known.
Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery continuously receives donations for the collection. Objects being donated are often from people living in Nuneaton and Bedworth and always tell a story about the borough in some way. We shall regularly post new acquisitions on our blog so that you can see what objects are being stored and displayed at your local museum.
