On This Day In History: May 10

In 1941, The Salvation Army International Headquarters on Queen Victoria Street was destroyed in the London Blitz during WWII. The night raid on that evening was the most severe attack London had sustained. A photograph by police constables captured The Salvation Army IHQ facade falling to the ground. The Salvation Army IHQ has been at the same site since 1881, destroyed in 1941, rebuilt in 1963 and proudly remains there today at 101 Queen Victoria Street.
