Welsh women road builders, South Wales

A group of twenty Welsh women road builders in Pembrokeshire, Dyfed, South Wales, holding their spades. They built the road to Hook in 1903-4 to facilitate transport to the colliery. They also worked at the colliery itself and gathered 'boughs' which were used as pit props, for which they were paid ninepence per hundredweight "

Extended family group at the seaside

Extended family group at the seaside - photographed with their backs to a fishing boat (perhaps to act as a windbreak?!) - note the 'News of the World' bucket held by the middle child - perhaps an early example of a marketing 'give-away' by the newspaper? Date: circa 1910s

Elsie Janis working on the land, WWI

American actress, Elsie Janis posing for a picture looking very fetching in a land workers outfit during the First World War. Elsie Janis (March 16, 1889 February 26, 1956) was an American singer, songwriter, actress, and screenwriter. Entertaining the troops during World War I immortalized her as "the sweetheart of the AEF" (American Expeditionary Force). The photograph bears a striking resemblance to picture number 10472401 - a drawing of a land girl on a postcard by amateur soldier artist George Ranstead. It seems likely that Ranstead saw and copied this photograph of Janis. Date: 1917
