Save the Children

Scope and Content

This file contains two photographs. The first depicts three small children peering out of an upstairs, open, rear window of a terraced house. Below the window are lines of washing. A caption on the verso states "no-one would pretend that these conditions do not exist in the United Kingdom, even after many years of the Welfare State. Where can these children play?" The second one shows a group of children sat round a table playing games such as draughts and dominoes. One child is also browsing a book, which he has chosen from the bookshelf on one of the walls. Black and white.
