You must feel an affinity for what you are photographing. You must be part of it, and yet remain sufficiently detached to see it objectively. Like watching from the audience a play you already know by heart." George Rodger was one of the Magnum founders and a Magnum Member since 1947.

    Very curious photo with a strange title! The date struck me first of all (WW2 is well over, rationing has ended and the welfare state fully implemented) and the young child is very warmly and well dressed for a "waif". I am going to suggest she is, given her posture, carrying a school bag on her back, hands in pocket and heading home. Who knows where she is today? I'm posting this to Imagine.
