Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of hop pickers at work in a hop field. Men gather the hop poles and lay them on racks. Women pick the hops from the poles and put them in baskets. When the baskets are full they are emptied into sacks. Men load the sacks into a horse-drawn cart. Oast houses stand in the background. Some of the men wear smocks.
