Caption : Verminous slum children being bathed

About 1912
Sun Court cleaning station, London

While I am glad the children had somewhere to go, this image is so unsettling I feel saddened to a point of immobility. Or perhaps it is the title.

But the coal mining children you had last week created an even more hopeless image.

I almost didn't post this, I felt so sad. But many of the London children evacuated in ww2 had the same problem. Some were said to only eat fish and chips.
