MysterE...a fine presentation!
Thanks for the reminder of what lies in my own backyard, or under it, as the case may be.
Underground Beijing is quite interesting. All buildings are constructed with many 'bombproof' levels going underground.
Of course, these days, those levels are used for parking cars. (And bicycles.)
There are many buildings in Beijing that have underground bomb shelters converted into parking lots.
For example, you may visit a shopping mall, and as you drive your car down through the various levels of underground parking your car will pass
through doorways. These doorways have huge 12 inch thick steel blast doors...permanently wedged open. However, these doors still look to be in fine
working condition...should the need arise.
And yes, I "have heard" about the secret tunnels. And, I "have heard" it is still possible to tour some of them...but, alas, your fine
presentation is as close as I have ever been...
This is a common sign seen on many, many buildings...both residential and business.
