The windows of this large rounded building (probably Westminster City Hall on Charing Cross Road) have been bricked up, both as a way to blackout the building, but also to prevent the glass from being continuously smashed by air raids. Various posters, including an advertisement for war savings, can be seen on the building, and various members of the public walk past as they go about their daily business.
