Eastbourne play centre. Photograph taken by John Pascoe in 1943.

Original caption reads: "A children's play centre in a Wellington suburb. Several mothers got together, hired a hall, made toys and painted them, and got a trained kindergarten supervisor to mind the children. Now mothers can leave the children at the centre for one afternoon a week. In time the scheme will become more ambitious."
