- Description Of Content:
- Three babies sitting in high chairs, eating in a kitchen.
The Booth children and their friend Simon Cordon in the Booth's kitchen at Doncaster East, 1962. Simon was staying with the family while his brother was being born. All the children had matching plastic bibs with drip trays, and a bottle of milk. There is a bench under the window looking out onto the front garden. The house design wasn't always practical, the front door opened into the lounge, so most people came in via the backdoor or carport into the family home.
