NOTES: A third of the City's buildings were destroyed by aerial attack between September 1940 and March 1945. Much of the church of St Mary-le-Bow, designed by Christopher Wren and completed in 1680, was destroyed by a bomb on the 10th May, 1941. It was designated a listed building in 1950 and rebuilding began in 1956 under the direction of Laurence King. It was reconsecrated in 1964.
