The impact of the First World War in some British towns was nothing less than catastrophic. This photograph is an area of houses in Grimsby, Lincolnshire. Each poppy represents someone that did not home after Armistice Day.

8 December 1980. 5.45 pm. John Lennon emerged from the Dakota Building.

Mark David Chapman asked him for an autograph.

Lennon signed on a copy of his album Double Fantasy and says to Chapman: “Is that all you want?”.
