Photograph showing blitz damage in a city centreCouncil Chamber, The Council House (to the left of the Civic Centre/opposite the Crown Court), Armada Way, Plymouth PL1 2AA

Made in 1946, Jill Craigie’s film shows the conception of the Watson-Abercrombie plan for the rebuilding of Plymouth after the terrible devastation of the blitz, seen through the eyes of one family.

The plan aimed to bring social improvement and modern amenities and is a remarkable record of how our city has been shaped and continues to evolve.
