"A West-end London street scene" by Grace Golden, 1945

Catalogue ref: INF 3/1738Links to the Catalogue


A West-end London street scene, busy with crowds of civilian shoppers, cars and buses, probably a hopeful wartime depiction of what life would be like when the fighting was over. This image speaks nothing of the austerity of the post war period in the UK.
