In the rear garden, looking across at a shop on the corner of Brampton Road.

Still one of these a couple of doors up from me - I can see it from the back upstairs window.

These things are pieces of history and should be preserved as such. My father and his family ( 2 adults and 4 teenagers) at 29 Elsden Road Tottenham spent every night during the blitz huddled in one of these as shrapnel from anti aircraft fire rained down and bombs/mines of every variety fell all around them.

My father is now 96 years of age but in years gone by he told me of whole families he knew of being wiped out by direct hits from bombs. He still maintained how much safer they all felt in the Anderson shelter though in reality it was only a few curved sheets of corrugated steel!

When my final surviving Grandmother moved out of the house due to ill health in 1986 the Anderson was still being used to store garden tools. Painted green at the time I still have fond memories of it and the potential tales it could have told
