Good morning all,
Above per ...
An excellent picture leads the article and other quality pictures are in article.
Note: "...emergency evacuations to the coast, then away from the coast, back into Anderson Shelters...".
Note term "deep shelter mentality".
Besides the danger of the warfare; the bombings, 300 people in crowded conditions, under stress, generate disease and related health matters.
Believe term "loud hailer" is Olde English for a megaphone. I've also seen British English term "hooter" in reference to a fixture on a British tugboat in British Asia.
A personal note; I like the design of the new memorial next to the subway sign. People do not routinely visit cemeteries and museums. The memorial is modern and most appropriately located.
I am a contemporary version of the mentioned "Air Raid Wardens".
Please disregard the couple of oblique references to current events.
