Fallout Shelter – Guitar

Fallout Shelter — Guitar. (Fuji Neopan 400. Nikon F100. Noritsu Koki.)

The above picture was taken in the supply closet of what was supposed to be a kind of schoolroom, located in the top floor of the fallout shelter my father built when I was about seven years old. (For background, click here.) Many of the books in this schoolroom’s little library consist of children’s stories, mostly Arthurian tales or other similar hymns to fantasy and heroism.

  1. In the top floor? Does this mean the shelter actually has several floors? Incredible!
    You could make a museum out of this place, I suppose – fascinating!

    • If you count the “basement” (where much of the grain and canned foods are stored), there are three floors: the main floor, where you enter the shelter, and where the generator room, sleeping bunks, and bathrooms are located; the top floor, where the kitchen and “schoolroom” are located. And the basement. So that’s three floors. It’s like an underground house, only much more cramped.
