Caption: Second World War air raid shelter, London Underground. People resting in sleeping areas set up along the train tracks in a London Underground station. These stations were used as air raid shelters during the bombing of London by German airplanes in the Second World War (1939-1945). The most intense period of bombardment, known as the Blitz, took place from September 1940 to May 1941. In London, over 20,000 civilians were killed, and over a million houses destroyed.
