Several people commented on this photograph which is held in the Imperial War Museum collection. ‘..A priest, probably Father Dixon, stands in the roofless shell of St George’s Roman Catholic Cathedral, on the corner of St George’s Road and Lambeth Road in Southwark, South East London. The Cathedral was severely damaged by an incendiary bomb attack which gutted the building on 16 April 1941. The photograph is taken from the altar end of the building, looking back down the nave towards the door..’. © IWM
The Museum holds more photographs of the damage, created by a Ministry of Information Photo Division Photographer, no name, and I can’t find any further information about Father Dixon.
