8 month old Teddy Hydd is fed his ration of orange juice on a spoon by a nurse at the 'Foster Parents Plan for War Children' Nursery in Hampstead. According to the original caption: "Teddy, a typical war baby, slept on a platform in Oxford Circus Tube Station from 10 days onwards. Elder brother died from shelter pneumonia. Pleasant child, but susceptibility to all illnesses is due to conditions in early infancy".
