Photograph of Guernica, 'capital of the Basque country, after it was devastated by the most appalling air raid in the Spanish Civil war. Hundreds of civilians in the town for a 'Feast Day' were killed in three and a half hours continuous bombing, by what is reported to be, German aeroplanes. The Insurgents are now continuing their advance on Bilbao.' Extract taken form the Daily Herald archive.
