    M/S men and women amongst hop bushes. Shot of mother and five children picking hops and putting them into a large bag. C/U of a pretty little girl with blonde curly hair and a grubby dress looking wistfully at the camera. She holds hops and other children are around her. A man empties hop pickings into a sack, while another man in a hat logs down the weight on paper. M/S men and women round a steaming cooking pot over a fire, and one women tastes the soup.

    Note: Did the cook forget the bouquet garni ? The grubby child looks ready for the Pears soap.
