Victorian illustration to download showing a group of women and young girls working in a hop field. Surrounded by hop plants growing up hop poles, they are picking the hops from a truss into wicker baskets and a sack suspended from poles. A toddler and a dog sleep beside them. This scene was engraved from the painting ‘Hoppers’ by William Lee (1810-65), exhibited at the New Society of Painters in Water-Colours in 1851.
