Dover: Lock and Key of the Kingdom

Dover 1943

In January 1944 the American magazine “National Geographic”  published an article entitled “Dover, Front-line Town of Britain’s Siege.” The pictures on the pages below give a snapshot of life in Dover in late  1943 after four years of war. I have grouped the pictures into themes, click the links below to see  them  The pictures are reproduced with the text of their original captions as  they appeared in the magazine.
