A group of women stand beside the wreckage of their homes following a V1 attack on the Highland Road and Lunham Road area of Upper Norwood, holding bedding and blankets as they chat to a Civil Defence worker. The women are standing beside an ambulance of the American Ambulance Great Britain. On the right of the photograph, workmen appear to be working on restoring power or water to the area, and in the background, rescue and salvage work is still going on amidst the rubble.
