Inside a 1940's house , the radio is the main part of the room as people would be listening to music, news and war reports .

Although this is London during the bombings these are the buildings that society would have been living in , also the hazy skys are represented in 1984.

This is pictures is what i think Orwell was trying to reflect in his description of the Proles housing and location . This is the pat of Oceania which gets bombed and has hole of plaster dust and rubble left from previous bombs.

This image shows an image of a street in London thats has not been bombed , I imagine the streets of Oceania to appear like this where the Inner Party lives .

The building George Orwell based the description of the Ministries . 
Senate House building now part of the University of London. 
It is clear in th ebook that this is the building , the vast pyramid shapes and thousands of glass windows.
