A busy scene showing staff at work in Steiner's salon, housed in a basement on Grosvenor Street in London. The original caption states that this was once an air raid shelter. Steiner moved to this premises in 1940, after having been bombed out of his last London salon. The original caption also states that this was a very popular spot at that time, as it meant that "staff and clients carried on undisturbed by day-time alerts".
