Eardley was a regular reader of Picture Post which in January 1948 carried a now infamous article, The Forgotten Gorbals, featuring photographs of children by Bert Hardy and Bill Brandt. Eardley herself was never without a camera, and some of Eardley’s drawings and oils such as Three Children at a Tenement Window are closely based on her photographs.
