About this image
A group of mainly female potato pickers pose for the camera with a Fordson Major Caterpillar D7 tractor. The latter type of machine came in many configurations (often as a bulldozer) and the UK received some early models under 'lend lease' during World War Two. After the end of hostilities many of these were sold off to contractors and farmers.
