    He is making some fake walls to hide the body's before he can take a picture, in typical german fashion this has to be exactly like the original wall so it might take a while unless he can recruit some students to help him out.

    I should take some pictures of the basement of the house I live in. It has an air raid shelter.

    Was building air raid shelters mandatory in west Germany in new houses durung the cold war? I know they were here at some point

      Spoiler:

    Not as luxurious as this one but I've had to add a photo

    I'll take a few pictures later today. Have to get up first. Was working Saturday as well, so I simply didn't have the free time to do so.

    And no, the building wasn't new during the Cold War. Far from it.

    Pictures you said?

    Before the entrance, it reads air raid shelter, push glass up to access key.



    Entrance:



    Go through and you see this, notice the slit in the wall?





    Behind the door is a small room with added braces:







    Remember the slit in the lock? This is the other side:





    "Exit" door to a dead end part of the basement:



    The type sign:



    The company no longer exists, the Luftschutzgesetz (air raid precautions law) was from 1935, barely readable is the serial number RL 3-37/234. That is the Albus Stahltürenwerk, steel door factory, the gas safe door, first produced in 1937. source

    Bonus:



    The roof had been thickened and steel girders were added.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Joe Appleby again.
    no idea what that thing is by the way, maybe something that pre-dates the conversion to air-raid shelter?
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    It's probably too simple:

    it's to check who is coming through the lock and if you don't like them, shoot them. Fairly standard in bunkers back then.
