Men & women smile for the camera on & around the bunks that are lined up under the clearly visible roof of a South East London railway arch, probably in November 1940. In the background, the ladies' lavatory can be seen. It is not possible to identify which of the many railway arches used as air raid shelters during the WW2 is featured in this sequence of photographs, although it is probable that it is at Dockley Road in Bermondsey.
