London’s Glory - 20 Paintings Of The City’s Ruins was published in 1945 and features various images of destruction across the city painted by exiled Polish artist Wanda Ostrowska. They make a striking and somewhat eerie record of London at its lowest.
If you find a copy (and there are plenty online) it’s likely to be around £8.
even thinking back to the early 1960s I can remember parts of London which were ‘bomb-sites’, often a row of buildings abruptly terminated and buttressed with great wooden beams
FDR on Republicans’ “Stealing Democratic Thunder:”
"Let me warn you, and let me warn the nation, against the smooth evasion that says ‘Of course we believe these things. We believe in social security. We believe in work for the unemployed. We believe in saving homes. Cross our hearts and hope to die.
'We believe in all these things. But we do not like the way that the present administration is doing them. Just turn them over to us. We will do all of them, we will do more of them, we will do them better and, most important of all, the doing of them will not cost anybody anything'
My favorite quote from the entire PBS, “Roosevelts: An Intimate History” (Ken Burns et al.) film series
just as relevant in the UK when the Tories claim they support the NHS
