Teams of Civil Defence Wardens and members of the rescue squads work to evacuate casualties from two severely bomb-damaged houses on Edith Villas in Fulham. A long ladder has been stretched to the upstairs window on the right, and casualties are being lowered on stretchers down the ladder by the 'heavy rescue' party. On the left, walking wounded are being guided down the slope of rubble that once was the front steps of this house. Civil Defence workers are stretching a long rope down this slope to act as a makeshift handrail. Two casualties on stretchers are just visible to the left of the photograph.
