A photograph of five boys jumping over a rope, taken by Tomlin for the Daily Herald newspaper on 21 August, 1935. Children play at a camp in Epping Forest, London. Saved from development in the late nineteenth century, Epping Forest remains the largest public open space in the London area. During the 1930s, many of London's poor could not afford holidays or trips to the country. Areas like Epping Forest provided valuable space for recreation for both young and old. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
