Silver gelatin print by Bert Hardy, printed in 1985, titled "Where Society Knows No Colour Prejudice: Liverpool School-children at Play." Originally published in Picture Post, July 2, 1949. Story titled "Is There a British Colour Bar?", about racism in Britain. Caption in magazine reads: "On the roof of Windsor Street County School, in the South End of Liverpool, white and coloured children play naturally together. They attach no meaning to differences of colour. A white and coloured child will often be 'best friends'. From such children society can learn a valuable lesson."
