A photograph taken by Colonel Joseph Gale (c 1835-1906), in about 1890, of farm labourers harvesting wheat. The farm labourers are working in the background, with horses and wagons ready to carry the harvest away. Stacks of wheat stand ready for collection in the foreground. 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.
