On one of his many forays into working class suburbs, Moore found this boy standing in a devastated landscape. The dark terrace houses, which had provided rented accommodation for generations of underprivileged families, were being demolished as councils replaced them with modern flats. The boy's upside down belt buckle bears the Boy Scout motto 'Be Prepared'.

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.
