About this image
A neat exercise in ploughing reaches its conclusion at the hamlet of Cowley near Holmesfield or, in the words of the photographer: 'The last Round. A good day's work ended. Snap today at Cowley, Derbyshire.'
He also recorded that the image was entered in a 'contest' (presumably a photographic competition) run by the Daily Mail but it is not known if it was successful or not.
The tractor has a partly illegible registration number applied to the right-hand mudguard, beginning HNU and then possibly 77? - numbers in this range were issued by Derbyshire County Council from 1940, which helps date the picture.
