A great night time shot of the
WWII Air Raid Shelter in the small park
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.

Can anyone tell
me where there are more
of these structures still standing in Brisbane?
I'd like to thank Sven Abrahamsson for his assistance with this web page.
Can anyone help me with more information?
