Old shelter

One of the interesting things I learned from Ben Cummins' Pavement Sonnets (so far) was that this sign used to show the distance to the nearest air raid shelter. It's on the side of the Barclays Bank.

Considering the amount of bombing Deptford sustained in World War II, it was presumably very well-used.

Nor was it the only one. Deptford's wartime past is one of my interests I plan to feature on my new blog - you can see the other signs I'm aware of at
