The Edwardian period is often seen as something of a gilded age; war would imminently remove hundreds of thousands of men from the labour force, and instigate progress to mechanize. Illustrated with a wealth of archive material, this book tells the story of farming in Britain in the early years of the twentieth century – an age of horse, steam and intensive labour. Looking at the structure of farming and its output, alongside the lives of the people who worked the land, this is a fascinating picture of British agriculture at a turning point in history.
