Hampstead Day Nursery, Ann Dowling, Pauline Carey, 1 hour

Image ID:

Helping to wash the smalls. Ann Dowling aged 4 and Pauline Carey aged 2 1/2, have found a job they really like. They have seen the maid washing the bibs, knickers and overalls at the Hampstead Day Nursery where they attend, and they have been allowed to try their hand with the bibs as a play game. So keen and efficient have they become that these little washerwomen are allowed to do all the bibs, and now they want to do more knickers, but Matron limits their work to 1 hour daily. They are economical with the soap and need no machine to do the wringing out. August 1947 P012147
