Soldiers and women around ballroom table, 1939. 'In the interval at this theatre a Tommy can do what he even can't do in Paris. He can go down to the ballroom built under the auditorium in surrounding s similar to a night club, and can dance to a modern swing dance band without extra charge. Here he can have a drink and make the acquaintance of one of the dance partners. In this picture, these girls seem to be in popular demand.'
