Ag. work in 1869

Picture and text contributed by Martin King in April 2004.

Going by what is written on the back, this was taken in Elmswell in 1869 in a field owned by James King (born 1829) who is supposed to be one of the men in front of the engine, however the 1871 Census only describes him as an Agricultural Labourer so I doubt he actually owned the land.
