Underneath the Northern Line where Windrush generation lived

More than two hundred migrants who arrived in the UK from the Caribbean in 1948 began their lives in London living not in houses or flats, but in a underground Lambeth labyrinth.

Their experiences are explored in a new exhibition in the Subterranean Shelter at Clapham South, which is being put on by the London Transport museum to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Windrush generation.
