A man buys a newspaper from a newspaper seller outside the Lyon's Corner House on Coventry Street in London. A small white box with a cross can be seen on the pavement. This box covers a dim light which, in the blackout, warns pedestrians of an obstruction on the pavement, in the case the low sloping 'shelf' which is used to store and display the newspapers. In the background, other pedestrians, a bus stop and a car can be seen.
