WW2 clothing exhange, 17 November 1942. 'Clothing exchange: a useful help-your-neighbour plan has been put into practice by the mothers of Ewell, Surrey. 'Pasing on' out-grown clothes from one child to another is a family institution, and this system has now been adopted in the district on a community basis. Under the name of 'Fitznells', the local Women's Voluntary Service is running a children's clothing exhange, the first of its kind in England. Once a week mothers take the outgrown clothes and shoes they wish to exhange for larger garments at the depot.' Photograph by James Jarche.
