Stand Back & Take Stock


I was browsing through some vintage photos today and came across these ones. This lady's name is or should I say was Florence Thompson , age 32, a migrant pea picker and mother of seven and the photo is dated 1933. I love these sorts of photos, they always make me stop and just appreciate my modern life and I have such respect for these women who just got on with things because I doubt I could do it...
