Members of the Clapham Society may be interested to read this article by Bethan Bell of BBC News.
Filled with many black and white photos taken at the time, the article talks about the people who arrived on the Windrush and their life in the subterranean dormitories of Clapham.
The Clapham Deep Shelters were the subject of a talk in 2008 by Derrick Johnson and Alyson Wilson.
Much has happened since that talk but the article that was written for our Local History Series is interesting and of great historical value.
