A wide view of Piccadilly Circus, showing Eros shrouded in sandbags and boards. A National Savings poster can be seen on the outside of these boards ('Hit Back with National Savings'). Further posters can be seen, including a large banner on the top of the Criterion Restaurant, just behind Eros, which reads 'Buy Three Percent Savings Bonds'. The Winston Hotel can be seen to the left of the photograph and in the background, the advertising slogan 'We Shall Have Moussec Wherever We Go' is visible on the side of a building. A few cars and pedestrians can also be seen.
