Women queue for vegetables at a shop somewhere in London. The photograph is taken from inside the shop (which appears to function kiosk-style, with a window giving directly onto the street from where the customers are served), looking out onto the street at the queue of housewives. In the background, a food collection van can be seen. The women appear quite cheerful, despite the long queue!
