A wide aerial view of Piccadilly Circus, showing Eros boarded up and covered in war savings posters. A London double-decker bus can be seen in the bottom right hand corner, travelling just in front of a group of overseas service personnel. More troops can be seen across the photograph, as they, and many civilians, go about their daily business. In the background, more buses and several taxis can be seen.
