If you've been to the National Emergency Services Museum on West Bar, you might have seen the Dalek shaped wartime air raid/fire warden shelter?

Originally located on the roof of the Sheffield Twist Drill on Summerfield Street, it was fabricated by the firm's maintenance department to provide some protection for the guy on fire watch duty.

You can see the location of the shelter in these Britain from Above photographs taken in 1948.

Similar constructions could be found inside a number of steelworks.
