One photograph showing a group of women holding baskets of potatoes. Caption on the back reads: 'Dismissed factory girls go 'back to the land'. Just a line from some of the dismissed factory girl pickers as, well wrapped up to combat the biting wind, they gather in the harvest on Mr Lindley's farm at Stanley Ferry.' See description of object 1983-5236/41980, SMG00344808 for further details on this story.
