A mother helps her daughter cross the road, by explaining that the safest way to cross is via the pedestrian crossing. They are obviously on their way back from shopping, as the mother is carrying a shopping basket full of goods and the child is carrying a large box of cereal. Behind them, another mother pushes a pram across another pedestrian crossing. Note also that the tape on the windows of the houses in the background to prevent blast damage has been applied in a 'spider web' pattern.
A mother teaches her daughter to cross the road in safety during 1942.
