Boys Playing Cards, Dundee

About this artwork

This photograph was taken in Dundee during the filming of a documentary entitled 'Children of the City'. Around the end of the Second World War, it was feared that boys growing up without the fathers who had been killed in the war might drift innocently into crime. The film was made for the Ministry of Information in 1944 and presented the new childrens' panels which were designed to deal with the problem of delinquency. This image was staged from one of the opening scenes.
