The library, Holland House, Kensington, London

An interior view of the bombed library at Holland House with readers apparently choosing books regardless of the damage. The House was heavily bombed during World War II and remained derelict until 1952 when parts of the remains were preserved. (It was taken by Fox Photos, a London photographic agency.)
