At his salon in Grosvenor Street, London, hairdresser Herman Steiner gives one of his juniors, Valerie, a lesson as she styles a customer's hair. According to the original caption, Valerie "is becoming a good hairdresser but very soon she will have to leave to join the Forces". The salon is housed in a basement which was once an air raid shelter.
