Pudsey is a real place, not just the name of a bear on the BBC. I like this photograph because although it’s one hundred years’ old, the play equipment is so familiar. Parks, of course, were the ‘lungs of the city’, public spaces where people could escape from the grime and dirt of slum housing and filthy work places for fresh air and fun for the kids. Yes, they might fall off a slide with no soft landing area and be maimed for life but no-one gave that a second thought, it was part of life’s pre-health-and-safety, pre-litigation, not-so-rich pattern.
