It is also not very reliable which makes it not useful to us. Source B states Evacuees walking to the station , this makes us believe that they are on their way to be evacuated, but we don t really know where it was taken as there is no sign of the station in the photograph. Also, if the photograph was propaganda from the Government, the people in it could have been made to smile. Source B only becomes useful if you interpret it in the way that it was meant to be interpreted, that it was a photograph of evacuees walking to the station. Source C seems slightly more useful than source B as it needs less interpretation. It also seems more reliable because a teacher who was there at the time wrote it; therefore it is a primary source. However source C could be partly opinion, an example of this was when the teacher said Children were too afraid to talk It was in her opinion that the reason they weren t talking was because they were afraid, it might have been for a different reason. ...read more.


Source 8E (A3 booklet, page 1) supports source F as it talks about the assumption made by hosts and villagers that all evacuees came from slums in London. The host from source E would have had a different reason for taking in an evacuee to the host of the evacuee from source F. The host from source E would have probably agreed to having a evacuee out of duty or pity and not because of the money, whereas the host of the evacuee in source F would have been a lot less wealthy and therefore could have agreed to having an evacuee because of the fact that hosts got paid money, or because the evacuee could be used for work, source 14 (A3 booklet) supports this as it says & we were expected to sweep out Mr Benson s butcher s floor and scrub down the marble slabs 5) I think that it actually does give a fairly accurate account of people s attitudes towards evacuation after looking at other sources. However it is secondary evidence as the writer was not there at the time and therefore is not as reliable and useful on its own as primary evidence is. It is also written by a historian, which we know can sometimes not tell the whole truth or interpret something in a different way. Historians can also give bias accounts, which also aren t reliable or useful. ...read more.


This was obviously the unsuccessful part of evacuation. Overall I believe evacuation was successful, source evacuation (A3 booklet, page 1) also agrees with me, even though it did not go smoothly, as I said previously it changed the way people in the country saw each other. A source on page 6 (A3 booklet) also supports this- One half of Britain is at least learning how the other half lives . able . However some hosts enjoyed having evacuees because it gave them extra money, which they&fn� | � x���>H�"�'�'�():)�)�.3�7�7z>�>�@�@"H*H�Q�Wf[�b>c@cBcDc��������������������������������������(2�"'(� �)� @�S �>cDc�� " .
