Hop picking years ago was a hands on affair and Walkers of Knightwick would employ many people to come and pick the hops. The people in this photograph are picking hops in the yards behind the Talbot Hotel. I say this as I am pretty sure that behind them is Ankerdine Hill. In the centre is my grandmother Lucy Jones her three nieces (left to right) are Nora Hayward, Doris Hayward and Mabel Hayward. Then I think it is her daughter Doris Jones (my mother). Possibly Mrs. Hiams on far Left and Mrs. Bishop on far right.
