Having photographed children in the depressed suburbs of Sydney, Moore sought similar subjects in London. My hunting ground was Pimlico, Stepney and Bermondsey, with their endless rows of soot-blackened terrace housing. Cars shaped like hansom cabs and ancient gas-fired streetlights occupied the damp roadway where boys played cops and robbers.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
