    Evacuation of Children from danger zones, especially from London, had again and again been urged upon parents, but the two photographs here presented the argument in favour of it far more forcibly than any words could have done. Top is a scene in the neighbourhood of Blackfriars Road, London, bombed at the end of 1940. Many children whose parents had taken advantage of the Government's scheme were spared the nights of terror that brought such devastation in their train. In the lower photograph are some of the Children who had been evacuated from Blackfriars, smiling and carefree at their wartime home, in a Dorset Village.
