Law student Mr N'jie unpacks his suitcase in his cubicle at the Colonial Centre at 17 Russell Square, London. Mr N'jie is from Gambia. According to the original caption "members pay 2/6 a night for a cubicle, 2/- for a bed in a dormitory". This particular cubicle looks very comfortable: the sun is streaming in through the window and a small shelving unit and fireplace can be seen on the right.
