The view shows Piccadilly, in the centre of Manchester, at the height of the 'Christmas Blitz', 22–24 December 1940. Several warehouses have been set ablaze by German incendiary bombs and firefighters are trying to contain the fires. For two consecutive nights Manchester was the target for severe air raids which caused major destruction across the city, as well as in the neighbouring towns of Salford and Stretford.
