Ethel Gabain (1893-1950) was appointed an Official War Artist in 1940 and produced two sets of prints: Women's Work in the War and Children in Wartime. The latter included this unusual lithograph, London Schoolgirls at Finnemore Wood - Camp Children in Wartime, 1940. She wrote in her notes, "This one of the thirty-one camps which have been specially built in the country and are now housing schools from the evacuation areas. At present there are about 6,000 children in the camps." We publish Doreen which looks at the experience of evacuation which for many children would not have looked like this.
