Aerial inclined photograph of the city of Cologne looking north. The river Rhine goes from left to right with one large meander. Three bridges cross the river as to turns back to the right. The furthest bridge is destroyed with the right hand two thirds of the deck in the river. The nearest bridge is an intact narrow temporary bridge. Just beyond this are two piers and towers of a destroyed bridge with the complete roadway missing. To the left of the furthest bridge is Cologne Cathedral. On on the farther bank another church/tower. The city landscape consists of many multistory buildings with a tree lined boulevard running left to right a third of the way up. Captioned 'Germany Cologne (1st thousand bomber raid)'.
