Rouen, spring 1944

Rouen, spring 1944. The space in front of the cathedral was levelled after fires broke out during the campaign of 1940. Allied raids in spring 1944, aimed at bridges and rail installations, set light to the cathedral itself, though the fire was put out. The historic Palais de Justice was another casualty.
