Interior of a Dorsetshire Labourers Cottage

Interior view of a peasant's cottage in Dorset in 1846, accompanying an article reporting on the poverty and squalor of some villages in the county. The interior shows bare, peeling walls, few possessions save a rudimentary dresser, a few tankards and cooking pots, two chairs and a cradle which contains a sleeping baby. A woman appears to be dressing her son, while an older girl sews and a toddler plays on the bare floor
