Crowds of people wait for news at the junction of Whitehall with Downing Street. The crowd consists of service personnel and civilians alike, all waiting for confirmation from the Prime Minister that the war in Japan is over. Clearly visible in the background, as well as a London bus, are the Cenotaph, the top of Victoria Tower (part of the Houses of Parliament) and Big Ben.
