English schoolboys from London wait at Paddington Station to be evacuated to the countryside during the Blitz as German bombing of the city intensifies. The evacuation of civilians in Britain was designed to save the lives, particularly children, from the risks associated with aerial bombings of cities targeted by the Luftwaffe by moving them to areas thought to be less at risk. London, England, U.K. 7 September 1940. Image taken by George Rodger.
Took a walk in London once upon a snowstorm. Came across these boats after getting lost on the way to Paddington Station
It is nearly 10.30 on a June morning in 1935 and the Cornish Riviera Express is about to depart from platform I at Paddington. Most people in this busy photograph are not catching the train but are walking along the platform or looking at the shops. There is a post office, a branch of Boots the Chemist, a tobacconist and, farther on, a confectioner, a bookstall and a hairdressing salon. Signs advertising these retail outlets are much the same as those advertising railway services.
