More than 25,000 bombs fell over London’s docks in World War Two during the Blitz.

As the museum is closed during the lockdown, it has released a series of images commemorating London’s wartime history.

The photographs and pictures chart the devastation caused by the Blitz to the city’s industrial heart, the resilience of Londoners during this time, and Docklands’ subsequent recovery.
