The Ruins of Coventry Cathedral

The ruins of the old Conventry Cathedral in England in 1951, this cathedral was destroyed during WWII during German bombing raids. I found this in my mother's photo collection, I assume she is the one who took it (she grew up in Coventry, living there 32 years, prior to her move to Canada in 1962).
