Billericay: Farm Workers at South Green


Farm workers
This photograph was taken in a field near South Green, Billericay, and came into my possession on the death of an old farm worker.  Apparently on handing it over just before his death in 1967 to the person from whom I procured it he gave the names of the individuals in the gang.  Unfortunately this information has been mislaid.  Before it is too late, perhaps some of your older readers may recognize the agricultural heroes in the photograph.  They will be over eighty years of age if they can.  JOHN MARYON … Hornchurch.
