A Ministry of Information car and display van carrying a salvage exhibition for the Ministry of Supply Directorate of Salvage and Recovery, photographed outside MoI headquarters at Senate House in London. The car has the words 'Private Scrap is in town...come and meet him' painted on the side.

The salvage exhibition continues inside the vehicle.
