Object description

Two groups of smiling children sit at tables and eat cheese, imported from America as part of the Lend-Lease scheme, in the playground of a severely bomb-damaged school in London, now being used as a feeding centre. Piles of salvaged wood, including window and door frames, can be seen behind them. This photograph was probably taken in late August or early September 1941.
