Air Raid Shelter In Garden (Sep, 1939)

Air Raid Shelter In Garden
THE beauties of a rock garden hide a reminder of war’s grimness. During the Sudeten scare of September, 1938, an English dentist constructed this concealed shelter from enemy bombers. It is ten feet long, three feet eight inches wide, and the walls are of solid concrete one foot six inches thick.

    Giving a whole new meaning to the term “victory garden.”
