A photograph taken by Paul Martin in about 1905 of a busy streetscene. A crowd of children gather around a gateway to a London park. A boy in the foreground pushes another child in a pram. Paul Martin is regarded as a pioneer of photo journalism. In 1892 he bought a 'Facile' - a popular hand camera made by Fallowfield of London. With his camera disguised as a leather case, he was able to work unobserved, taking the candid photographs of daily life which are recognised as his greatest work.
