  • Short Summary

    Street scenes around Piccadilly Circus, Shaftsbury Avenue, the Strand and Aldwych.

  • Description

    Unissued / unused material.

    London.

    L/S Piccadilly Circus looking towards Shaftsbury Avenue, pan to the underground (tube) entrance at lower Regent Street. M/S buses and traffic passing in Piccadilly Circus (Eros statue is boarded up). Good street scenes in Piccadilly - lots of servicemen about. L/S of Strand looking towards the church of St. Mary-le-Grande (Mary le Grand). L/S of Aldwych from the Strand. Several "We've got to keep on saving" posters seen on billboards.

    Note: old records give year as 30/04/1947 but given amount of servicemen in street and blackout markings on pavement, could be earlier, wartime perhaps?
