The windows of a Marks and Spencer store in Canterbury are boarded up following a devastating Baedeker raid on the Whitefriars area of Canterbury. In the foreground, piles of debris are all that is left of several buildings along the street. According to the original caption, a fire was started by incendiaries in the top of the Marks and Spencer building and was kept under control by Fire Guards until the National Fire Service arrived. A barrage balloon is just visible in the sky to the right of the photograph.
