Air Raid Shelters - Elizabeth St, Brisbane

During WWII numerous Air Raid Shelters were built in Elizabeth Street, Brisbane, Queensland. A large water pipe was also installed in the street to fight fires during and after any possible Japanese air raid. It was supplied with water from the Brisbane River. Large pumps and motors were installed on the banks of the Brisbane River to pump the water through the large pipes.
