Attached is a French photograph from 1915 showing the entryway to one of the many subterranean shelters that dotted the Western front during the First World War; also shown is a diagram illustrating one of the smaller German dugouts with a similar entrance.

There were some reinforced with bricks or concrete, with electric lighting.
