It deepens like a coastal shelf
Oh dear, rather on the same order as WC Fields' comment that children should be kept in a barrel and fed through a bung until the age of twelve when the bung should be stopped up....
Better that than smashed to smithereens by the Luftwaffe. My mum was evacuated from Sheffield during WWII.
We walked past a weekend Scout camp in Cornwall on Friday and parents were dropping off tiny 8 year old lads and taking pictures of them carrying rucksacks the size of themselves. Resisted the temptation to call the Social Services.
Bad idea. Then they invariably wind up staying in their old uncle's house where they wander into magical wardrobes.
Very struck by how those children's faces are completely 'of their time'. No child today would have either face, particularly the boy's. Why is that?Enjoying your blog, Natalie
Carol - I wonder if someone at the War Office was having a bit of fun when they wrote that.Catherine - True, although children's experiences as evacuees were very mixed. Rog - You should have made the call - and recorded it.Chris - If only...Natalie - I've had the same thought myself about faces. When I saw 'The Artist', I was struck by how 1920s Jean Dujardin looked, whereas Bérénice Bejo had a modern face that seemed quite incongruous.
