Kōrero: City children and youth

No place for kids

In the early 20th century inner-city living came to be viewed as detrimental to children’s health and welfare. Children playing in city streets – rather than in spacious suburban backyards or playgrounds – became a symbol of urban decay. Scenes of inner-city street play are used to promote the need for suburban state housing in this clip from the 1946 film Housing in New Zealand.
