Caption: War of the Worlds. Artwork showing alien creatures and machines invading Victorian London, England. They are destroying Tower Bridge, on the River Thames. The aliens are using death rays to heat and vaporise any opposition. This artwork is based on the descriptions from the science-fiction novel The War of the Worlds (1898) by the British author H. G. Wells (1866-1946). In this novel, England is invaded by aliens from the planet Mars. For a set of images showing this invasion, in both Victorian and modern times, see S920/241 to S920/243.
