In the early days of WW2, that is before Air Raid Shelters were dug in solid rock / limestone below street levels.

Many frightened people used to go hiding / taking shelter under these staircases.

That was during 1940. Quite a few people were buried under the crushed slabs of these stairs.

They were definetly not bomb-proof.

The staircase is perfect. I like the scene it sets too. Nice work.

This spiral staircase is beautiful! Stone houses are lovely too—I'm glad they're going back to using it in the new houses there.
