The Imperial War Museum in Manchester, England will be hosting a free exhibit featuring color photographs from London during World War II. These photos are one part of the museum's "Horrible Histories: Blitzed Brits" exhibition, which will also showcase more than 200 objects, including artowk, film clips, sound recordings, personal stories, and more. Among the everyday scenes are some of the area's most well-known landmarks—Trafalgar Square and St. Paul's Cathedral—in color. The scenes are littered with debris from bombs dropped by Nazi Germany.
