As part of our May You Live In Interesting Times programme, Jane McArthur will talk about an uncatalogued archive of 37 photographs in the Imperial War Museum. Part of the Press and Censorship Bureau Photography Library, images from the archive show people salvaging their possessions and digging through damage after the bombing of an unnamed street in London on the night of the 17/18 May 1943. Jane will talk about her doctoral research process, which has extended to other archives, and about an elderly man in Canada who had waited nearly sixty years to share the loss of his childhood home in that street on that night.

Jane McArthur is based in D&G, and is a Collaborative Doctoral Researcher with The University of Edinburgh & Imperial War Museum, London.
