Incredible photographs show Europe in 1947 as the continent reeled from the devastation of the Second World War

These incredible colour images show life in Europe in the wake of Second World War as the continent grappled to come to terms with the death and destruction which had plagued it for six long years. Among the surreal scenes captured by photographer David Seymour in 1947 are damaged ships still anchored off Omaha Beach, children laying flowers at the graves of the war dead and the rebuilding job underway in towns across France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
