|Description: In March 1940 the government began to construct communal shelters designed to protect around fifty people living in the same neighbourhood. Made of brick and concrete they provided more protection than Anderson shelters. However, within a couple of months there was a severe shortage of cement and this slowed down the building of these shelters. This photograph shows the street shelters on Parkstone Road in Peckham.|
