The Beds

Leonard Clow


The number of beds in the shelters depended upon how many were to sleep in there. In this example there were three beds, one was a bunk bed above another one. The beds were supplied by the Government and the supports were up to the owner. In this Leonard Clow drawing the occupants look really cosy in their beds - fast asleep. In reality things were very different indeed. It would have been dark, damp, cold, spider infested and, not to mention, the constant sound of bombs going off all around outside.
