Seventy years ago, Liverpool suffered eight days of bombing during World War II.

Hundreds of buildings were destroyed in prolonged raids which targeted the docks area at England's largest west coast port.

The city became the most heavily bombed British city outside London.

The maternity ward in Mill Road Hospital, Liverpool, took a devastating direct hit on 3 May, 1941.

The bomb landed in the courtyard at the rear of the hospital, killing many mothers and their newborn babies.

I like the interior shots Barbie, I dont think i have seen them before.  .. Leonard Rossitor aka Rigsby lost his dad in that Bombing. His Dad was one of many ambulance drivers killed whilst at the ambulance station within its grounds when the Raid occured
