England New Air Raid Shelter

A new type of air raid shelter, of strong construction but elegant design, is being marketed in Great Britain. Known as the Bison Wattle Shelter, it consists of a circular wall of reinforced concrete between two walls of wattle hurdling, with a concrete floor and roof. Walls and roof are twelve inches thick, providing substantial protection. The shelter accommodates seven people and costs approximately £50 , around $250 to build. Mr. J.
