From the series 'Mothers' Day Off'

About this artwork

'Mother's Day Off' was a photostory about a group of women from Bermondsey in South London enjoying a day-trip to the coast. It was one of a series of articles in which 'Picture Post' looked at the ways in which working-class people spent their free time during the summer months. On a rare day off the women are enjoying a drink at a local bar before departing for Margate. This has clearly sparked off the curiosity of the children playing outside.
