Description
English: A young woman plays a gramophone in an air raid shelter in north London during 1940.
A young woman places the gramophone needle on a record to bring some light relief to an air raid shelter, somewhere in north London. The rest of the shelterers appear to be enjoying her choice of music. In the background, one woman can be seen knitting, as others chat to pass the time.

This tag is designed for use where there may be a need to assert that any enhancements (eg brightness, contrast, colour-matching, sharpening) are in themselves insufficiently creative to generate a new copyright. It can be used where it is unknown whether any enhancements have been made, as well as when the enhancements are clear but insufficient. For known raw unenhanced scans you can use an appropriate {{PD-old}} tag instead. For usage, see Commons:When to use the PD-scan tag.
