School holidays in the Gorbals, August 1926.

Three boys, two of them barefoot, appear to be playing a game ("bools" or marbles perhaps?) in the backcourt at 13 Hospital Street. A girl and boy look on curiously from a nearby roof and a little black kitten cat is sitting in the shade cleaning itself.
