St Giles’ circa 1956 and surrounding ruins
Short film made about 1956 of St Giles’ and the surrounding ruins. It shows a 360-degree panorama from the roof of a ruined building to the south – site of the Barber Surgeon’s Hall? Is shows the church very clearly, the desolation of the bombing, a few still recognisable landmarks, and an Underground train running in the open air through the ruins.
The film was taken by the father of Hugh Small who has shared the film, provided the text, and can also be seen in the film, then aged 13.
