Clapham South Shelters closed swiftly after Allied victory was announced, but they reopened shortly after as a cheap hostel for homeless Londoners. The bunks were spread out to make them more comfortable and a variety of groups were given accommodation here, including military personal and the first migrant workers who arrived on Empire Windrush.
