Commentary
British soldiers dig in the wreckage of the Auxiliary Territorial Service building, where at least 12 A.T.S. women met death when Focke-Wulf fighter-bomber scored a direct hit on the hostel. Fifteen enemy planes took part in the raid on the East England coastal town, bombing and machine-gunning the streets from rooftop level. There was also extensive damage done to houses, May 1943.

Technique
Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.

Materials
Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
