From the publisher

For children growing up in Britain fifty or more years ago, streets and alleyways were playgrounds of curiosity and adventure. Nowadays, tempted by technology or restricted from being alone outside, ‘playing out’ is no longer the norm. These images from leading street photographers form a joyful, nostalgic record of past freedoms.

Includes work by 10 photographers: Shirley Baker, Tony Boxall, Robin Dale, John Gay, Henry Grant, Paul Kaye, David Lewis-Hodgson, Roger Mayne, Margaret Monck and Martin O'Neill.

With an introduction by Lucinda Gosling. This book is published in collaboration with Mary Evans Picture Library.
