A busy scene Colston Avenue in Bristol, showing pedestrians and vehicles going about their daily business. The statue of Edmund Burke has been covered in boards publicising the Ministry of Information blood donation campaign. Along with an illustration of a wounded serviceman and the dates of the campaign, the poster includes the words: "Enrol as a blood donor for the Second Front". In the background, the large warehouse buildings of Thos. Reynolds and Sons Ltd, a builders' merchant and iron monger and E Taylor and Sons Ltd, a leather merchant, can be seen. In addition, to the left of the photograph, is the large Bristol and West Building Society. Behind the warehouse buildings, the tower of St Stephen's Church on Corn Street is also clearly visible. Parked beside the statue is a blood transfusion van, which has a map on the rear which illustrates "Where your blood goes".
