Mr D A Thomas (a law student) and Miss Rosamund Harding (a student teacher) enjoy the view from the sunny balcony of the Colonial Centre at 17 Russell Square, London. Both students are from Sierra Leone. The large building in the background is the Russell Hotel. Just above Rosamund's head, a barrage balloon can be seen, illustrating the fact that the war is never far away.
