A photograph of two horses pulling a cart piled high with branches and twigs, taken by Colonel Joseph Gale (c 1835-1906) in about 1890. The driver of the cart stands, leaning against the load, holding a whip to hasten the horses. Joseph Gale specialised in naturalistic photographs of rural life and figures in landscapes. He was one of the first members of the Linked Ring Brotherhood and was also a member of the Royal Photographic Society.
