Object history note

Most of the large collection of photographs acquired in 2013, B.5 to 162-2013, were printed for display in an exhibition at the Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood, called 'Childhood, Inward and Outward Views' (16 May to 15 July 1990). John Heywood continued to develop his project to document the lives of contemporary children, and has subsequently added to the original collection of prints.
