Air raid shelters

I remember the air raid shelters on Peckham Rye. When I was a child in the 1950s they were a great place to play.

We would all go to the shelters and run up to the top and then jump off which was quite a height. They were a great place to have a picnic as the top was a large flat square. They were also a good place to dry your towels when you came from the Peckham lido. There were large numbers of us who were very upset when the shelters disappeared as we had so much fun on them.

Do any of our members remember Moores Stores London Ltd? They were grocery wholesalers in Chadwick Road, just past Lyndhurst Way now print village.
