Don’t know precisely where the bomb was in relation to the location of the taking of the picture. The policeperson – and the photographer – appear to me to be too close to it for someone not wearing protective gear, as that looks like a rather vigorously-moving cloud of debris not far-off atall … but then the warning given – though indeed given – was presumably not quite so generous as to admit of full compliance in every detail with H&S regulations such as we are now accustomed to.
Infact, it seems fair to assume that the bomb was at the bottom of that column of flame, just down the road on the right.
They did issue warnings in advance, sometimes, in order that the damage be to property alone & the terror no more than that of having to flee the explosion in haste. Pretty obviously, really (except insofar as someone exceedingly imperturbable might just by chance have been just passing with a camera handy, or one of the bombers might have taken it), a warning was issued at this instance.
Sick that edgy leftists and Irish nationalists still defend the IRA openly on reddit.
You gotta hand it to the photographer for the timing of the photograph. Wrong place at the right time
