    On photographing on Wimbledon Common: "One afternoon I unexpectedly surprised a group of small boys intent on some secret game. They laughed when I appeared with my camera and then dashed among the trees, with me in determined pursuit. I stuck with them until they became bored with my presence, and forgot me altogether." (Robertson, Photojournalist of the 50s, p.107)
