A model poses for the camera on a Bloomsbury rooftop as she shows off a cyclamen and white printed silk dress, the skirt blown by the breeze, worn with a white turban (as featured in D 14782, D 14784 and D 14798) and white gloves. According to the original caption, this dress was "'bartered' with a friend for a navy print". She is also wearing sunglasses. In the background, the top of Senate House, Ministry of Information headquarters, can be seen.
