Mappery For the love of maps

Bomb Damage

Dave Lovell shared this map of bomb damage in part of London (including the Imperial War Museum) during the second war (seems to be a theme for Dave).

Taken at I was stuck by the meticulous care which must have gone into recording the location and state of damage. I could almost hear the sound of scrunching glass as those recording the details picked their way carefully through the damaged street and buildings. 

No thematic map would be complete without a legend
