Scammel being loaded with Anderson Air Raid Shelter, West London, 1939
Westbourne Park Yard in April 1939 is the focus of this interesting pre-war image. Parts of Anderson shelters are being unloaded from a line of wagons onto a 3 ton Scammell tractor by a Ransome and Rapier petrol electric crane. From February 1939 Anderson shelters were distributed to households throughout the country. They were issued free to low income households and to those that earned more than £5 per week they were sold at a cost of £7. A total of 3.6 million Anderson shelters were issued or sold during the Second World War. From Westbourne Park Yard these shelters would have been distributed to homes throughout the London area.
