    Kent.

    Title: "The Profit and Pleasure Holiday! 'Advanced guard' of the 'hop pickers' army' are already at work in the fields".

    Panning shot of women and children picking hops in a field - very idyllic looking, although they are all very poorly dressed. A man in a brown trench coat seems to be overseeing the hops harvesting process.

    C/U of two women and a man picking hops, they laugh at the camera. C/U of a blonde toddler picking hops.
