    I wonder what it is “written” on the cart wheel… “109…”?

    These children have old, tired eyes.

    Used to practically live and breath in Spitalfields in London… great place now but some areas, streets were totally poverty stricken for a long time, used to have 10 families too a house a room shared as well plus this is in the middle of Jack the Rippers stalking ground.

    Poor wee things, the boy leaning against the wall really looks so sad…
