This photo shows a group "Special Pickers".
["Special Pickers" picked hops from certain designated hills in the hop gardens and the hops were picked into bushel baskets before being packed for analysis by Guinness Hop Farms. I'm not sure what all the analysis was but I'm sure yield was a major factor]
On the left of the photo there is Mrs Saxby, Jo Willard and Elsie Simmons.
