Ibid., p. 11. This shelter, where thousands of people sheltered every night is vividly described by a Mass Observation team which visited it in September 1940:

A dense block of people, nothing else. By 7.30 p.m. every bit of floor space taken up. Deckchairs, blankets, stools, seats, pillows . . . people lying everywhere. The floor was awash with urine. Only two lavatories for 5,000 women, none for men . . . overcome by smell. People are sleeping on piles of rubbish . . . the passages are loaded with filth. Lights dim or non- existent . . . they sit, in darkness, head of one against feet of the next . . . there is no room to move and hardly any to stretch. Some horses are still stabled there, and their mess mingles with that of the humans. (cited in Calder ( 1969), p. 117)
