Farrier, Woodbastwick, Norfolk AA98_13563 Featured Hallam Ashley Collection (1931-1980) Print

Farrier, Woodbastwick, Norfolk AA98_13563

Woodbastwick, Norfolk. Interior of blacksmiths shop. A farrier shoeing a horse. A working horse would need re-shoeing about every five weeks. Here a hot shoe is measured against the horse's hoof, and the farrier can tell by the mark left how much to alter the shoe. However, the post-war campaign to mechanise agriculture meant that within a decade of this picture being taken there were few working farriers left. Photographed by Hallam Ashley, February 1949

Maltings, Stowmarket MF98_01576_08 Featured Hallam Ashley Collection (1931-1980) Print

Maltings, Stowmarket MF98_01576_08

The Maltings, Station Road, Stowmarket, Suffolk. Interior view. Malt, the first process in the making of beer, is traditionally made in a floor maltings. The grain, usually barley, is first soaked in water in big tanks or 'steeps' and is then spread out at a depth of about 30cm over the malthouse floors. When it begins to sprout it is transferred to a kiln where it is heated to stop it growing. Once nearly every town and village in England had a traditional malthouse: today fewer than ten are still in use. Photographed by Hallam Ashley in September 1970

Herring Girls, Great Yarmouth AA98_17150 Featured Hallam Ashley Collection (1931-1980) Print

Herring Girls, Great Yarmouth AA98_17150

Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. A group of women, possibly Scottish herring girls, on the quay with herring boats beyond. Although the herring trade began to decline in the 1930s due to increased competition from a wider range of tinned foods, the herring girls continued to follow the migrating shoals in the early post-War years. Photographed by Hallam Ashley in November 1947
