A photograph of the artist Edwin Calligan with his wife and baby daughter in their Hampstead flat in London, taken by George Roper for the Daily Herald newspaper on 30 January, 1940. In a happy family scene, Edwin Calligan sits on the floor holding his baby daughter whilst his wife watches from an armchair. The holes in Mr Calligan's shoes suggest that art is not paying very well during the war. This photograph is one of a series taken to illustrate a Dudley Barker feature story on workers in wartime.
