A teacher and her pupils, all wearing gas masks, enjoy a lesson in a basement at Greek Road School in South East London in 1941. The teacher points to the alphabet, which is chalked on the blackboard. Although many schools were evacuated during the war, many chose to stay and 'make the best of it', converting cellars and basements into makeshift classrooms.
