An absolutely pivotal view of post war Bath. Holy Trinity church still stands empty after wartime bombing in James Street West, St James Church has been demolished, leaving only its footprint, work is underway building the City of Bath College on the site previously intended for the new Mineral Water Hospital. A solitary house stands in the recently demolished Charles Street, neighbouring Green Park East destroyed in wartime bombing. Land in Manvers Street lays empty, prior to the building of the new police station, a petrol station occupies the site now taken by the One Stop Council shop. Bath is about to experience significant change. An incredibly detailed view. Aerofilms Ref A78366
