bounded by Cornwall Street, Rusk Street, Kent Street and Annerley Road

 

The Brisbane City Council adopted an innovative design for its public air raid shelters such that after the war, the brick walls around them could be removed leaving a cantilevered roof concrete structure ideal for bus shelters or general shade.
