Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Does source D support the evidence of source B and C about the damage done during the air raid? Source D partly supports the evidence of the sources B and C about the damage done during the air raids. Source D is a photograph of Coventry, one of the most heavily bombed cities, taken on 13th November 1940, but not published for 3 months, until February 1941. It has a positive propaganda caption stating, "Sorting personal property". But by looking at the photograph, we understand that it does not depict as it claims. The left hand side of the photograph shows a damaged building. Only one side of the building looks to be survived. There is also a lot smoke in the background. ...read more.

Middle

She looks rather depressed and demoralized. There are many similarities between sources D and B. Both sources are photographs showing the aftermath of bombing raids. Both show damage caused, but different kind of damage. Source B shows number of school girls died during the bombing raid and source D shows the damaged caused to the city of Coventry after the air raids. Both sources give us an idea about the organisation, like bodies being put into sacs by the air raid officials and personal property being sorted. We can also distinguish the community spirit. However, there are also few differences between sources. Both sources show different cities, source B is a photograph of Catford in London and source D shows the city of Coventry. ...read more.

Conclusion

Both photographs are dated early in the Blitz. Both sources were published for probably propaganda reasons because they both have positive quotes and captions. However, there are also many differences between sources C and D. both photographs were taken in different months and in different cities. Source C was published the next day, whereas Source D was not published until 3 months. Source C was posed for propaganda reasons. But source D was obviously not posed. In conclusion, source D partly supports the evidence in sources B and C about the damage done during the air raids. However, source D supports the evidence of B more than source C because both sources show the damage done during the air raids and the photographs are not posed for propaganda. Also, source D is hard to evaluate. All photographs depict damage but different kinds of damage. ?? ?? ?? ?? Amit Parpani ...read more.
