Children playing hopscotch in a street in Ladbroke Grove. By the early 1900s the Ladbroke Estate, which had largely been built between 1823 and 1833, had become predominantly working class and the large houses divided up into flats. By the 1950s the area had degenerated further and become synonymous with inner city deprivation. Several photographers worked in the area at this time, not only to raise awareness of the living conditions, but also to convey a sense of the communal spirit they found there.
