Mrs Day says goodbye to the butcher as she leaves his shop, after having bought her meat ration. The window of the butcher's shop has been boarded over after the glass was knocked out during an air raid. The sign in the butcher's window says "Help Win the War on the Kitchen Front. Above All Avoid Waste'. This photograph was probably taken on the King's Road in Chelsea.
