I’m so behind on blogging that I’m almost embarrassed to be posting these pictures. It’s already 2016, and our family trip to Canada around September of last year now just seems like a distant memory.
Despite my lack of punctuality with blogging and posting pictures, I figured now that I’m done with my first round of midterms I finally have time to sit down and share some of these pictures from none other than a Cold War bunker! Probably not something you would have imagined right? Yeah, me neither.
Diefunbunker, the official name for the Cold War bunker located in Toronto, Canada, was built starting in 1959 to house government and military officials in the case of a nuclear war.
The display models show how details of each level of the bunker-there are 4 levels total to this bunker!
Lots of radios and controls, as this was the site of some of the most top-secret communications during the Cold War.
Office space for all the top secret operations going on.
Here we come to the building inside the building-this was a huge vault, sealed with a 30-ton door.
See? It’s actually a building inside a building! There’s a narrow walkway surrounding all four sides of the vault.
Who would have known that all of this could be housed within what looks like a seemingly ordinary warehouse?

Thanks for reading!
