The children are playing at the Children's House, Bow, in London's East End. The house was a pioneering creche and nursery for the poor children of the area. It was opened in 1923 by the author H G Wells (1866-1946). The Children's House was run by the sisters Muriel Lester (1883-1968) and Doris Lester (1886-1965).
