Description
A young woman sits leaning against the inside edge of a wooden stair landing, with a thin little toddler in a bonnet and dress, sitting beside her. It is not clear whether they are simply resting or begging. From behind, we see the lower-half of a woman in white stockings and somewhat flimsy white medium high heeled shoes and a dark suit. Neither the photo nor the caption reveals whether the woman had ignored the young mother and her child, or had stopped to speak to them or had assisted them in some way, before heading up the stairs.
