    Yeah saw this linked on Boing Boing.

    Babbage Urchins are soft :-)

    Still, I reckon the pair (twins?) with the braces would fit right in here.

    The thing that puzzles me about these pictures is that although many of them are dressed in dirty, ill-kept clothing, someone saw it fit to make sure the boys all had suitably short haircuts.

    It’s a little creepy.

      errrrr……. lice….. no shampoo…. short hair required (sometimes even the girls!)

    notice much of the clothing is adults clothing cut down to size, and several layers to cover holes!

    shoes or boots would be worn only in winter, or for Sunday best – occasionally for school, when one pair might be shared between the family children..
