London’s new tunnel shelters, built below tube stations, are now practically completed. There are to be eight of them, and it is hoped that seven will be ready by the autumn. They will provide security for 8,500 people in each of the shelters, which are equipped with canteens. Recreation space, sick bays and isolation wards. It is unlikely that any further shelters of this type will be constructed owing to lack of time and materials. A view in one of the new deep shelters in London Sept. 18, 1942. The special cleaning machine employed is in use. The name of the bay of the shelter (each has its indivual name) and the endless tiers of bunk stretching as far as the eye can see.
