Bringing in the Harvest

Britain in the 19th century was an industrial nation but also had a rural economy employing vast numbers of men, women and children in labour-intensive, physically-demanding work. At harvest time, whole families shared the task of cutting, gathering, transporting and storing the crops. This photograph from the 1890s shows the pride and joy of working together to get the job done.
