London Transport during the Blitz

A short blog post about this quite interesting propaganda film made just as the Blitz was starting, and how doughty Londoners carried on regardless.

“Filmed after the start of the Blitz, ‘City Bound’ is an exploration of the daily commute into London from the suburbs in 1941.”

So get a cup of tea, settle down and enjoy 10 minutes of classic music, crisp voiceover and vintage trains, trams and buses.
