Silver gelatin print of hop pickers arriving in Kent from London. Each year, thousands of men, women and children would migrate from London to Kent to help with the hop harvest, which lasted for about four weeks from the end of August. By the 1960s, machines had removed the necessity for hand-picking hops.
