24 Impressive Vintage Photos Capture Street Moments of Children in England During the 1950s

For contemporary children, it may be difficult to imagine kids having fun in the 1950s. Not only were there were no video games, even children’s television programming operated at a bare minimum, with the medium still in its infancy at that time. Yet such limitations frequently forced them to spend more time outdoors or to play creatively — activities many child development experts today say lead to more satisfying experiences for children overall.Although parental discipline tended to be more authoritarian, in the 1950s, children generally enjoyed a greater amount of personal freedom during leisure time than they do today. There were fewer cars on the road, so many children roamed freely on foot. They rode bicycles to the corner store, got muddy exploring neighborhood gullies and played street hockey. Dr. Peter Gray of Boston College notes that “trustful parents,” or, “those who trust their children to play and explore on their own, to make their own decisions, and to make and learn from their own mistakes,” are not as common today as they were in the 1950s.Check out these vintage photos to see everyday life of children playing on the streets of England during the 1950s.
