Public shelters in vaults under this street

27 Jul

En route to the Tate Britain for the Lowry exhibition our guide (Pink Sister’s sister!) pointed out these signs for WW2 bomb shelters. There’s another London under our feet. Nearby are the remnants of tunnels from the prison (I am told on the current Tate site) to the dock from which prisoners were transported to the colonies. Step forward several hundred years and we used the Tate to Tate boat to scoot down to the South Bank.
