Air Raid Shelter 1942

Air Raid Shelter, February 1942
BFA Collection.
Architects: Francis H Swan (Lawrence and Swan).
Structural Engineer: Peter Holgate.

This shelter with, a capacity for 334 people, was located under Hannah's factory building on Eva Street. The ground floor was removed and the space below excavated, a new concrete ground floor replaced the old timber floor (it provided a roof to the shelter), and a new concrete basement floor laid. There were two entrances from a service lane off Eva Street.

We do not know if this was built.

Continuous practice since 1892... design for your needs, not for ours
