Mapping the bombs of the London Blitz
Two screencaps from a comprehensive interactive map at Bomb Sight. At the original you can pan and zoom, look at specific time periods, and select by type of bomb. I located two impact sites within a couple blocks of the home where I spent the summer of my sabbatical in the Chiswick/Turnham Green area near Hammersmith. Fascinating - and sobering. Exploring the site gives one a better appreciation of what the residents of the greater London area had to endure during the Blitz.

Addendum: Reader studiolum notes that a similar map charting the locations of bombs striking Budapest is posted at Poemas del rio Wang.
