A photograph of children driving toy pedal cars, taken in October 1938 by Saidman for the Daily Herald.
The children wait at traffic lights in a model traffic area in Tottenham, London. The first real traffic lights in Britain were erected in Piccadilly Circus, London, in 1926.
Two Saidman brothers, Reuben and Barnet, worked as staff photographers for the Daily Herald. Their photographs are simply stamped 'Saidman' on the reverse, making it difficult to tell which of the brothers took the photograph.
