A photograph of a long line of young women, employees of Lever Brothers, ducking for apples at New Eltham, London, taken by Edward Malindine for the Daily Herald newspaper on 14 September, 1935. Apple ducking featured as an event within the obstacle race at this annual sports day. William Hesketh Lever (1851-1925), Lord Leverhulme, began manufacturing 'Sunlight' soap in England in 1884. He founded Port Sunlight, the model factory and community south of the Mersey. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
