We came across this photograph in our lantern slide collection and thought of Movember! There are some excellent beards here too.
We think this picture was taken round about 1900, but we have no more information about it at all. Who are the people? Where are they digging? What were they digging? Who took the photograph?
If you can shed any light on this picture, we would be grateful.

wouldn’t be sure it’s archaeology with all them hay-forks… the ground doesn’t even look like turf… the guy with the bowler might be a clue…
