Description
Part of Mary King's Close, an old underground street beneath the City Chambers, was used as an air raid shelter during World War II. Three men are standing near arched doorways. They are dressed in smart clothes, and two of them wear hats. Pipes and a loose door panel are propped up against the walls.
