Civilians walk amongst the piles of torn up paper which have been thrown, 'ticker tape'-style, from the windows of offices, on Lower Regent Street, London, to celebrate the signing of the Peace with Japan. More paper can be seen fluttering down onto the pavement and road: many vehicles appear to have stopped. It appears that this photograph was taken on Lower Regent Street, looking back up towards Piccadilly Circus. In the middle of the road (left of the photograph), a brick surface shelter can be seen.
