Churchill family picking plums

These photos were bought at auction by Ray Jones of Worcester.  They show the Churchill family picking plums about 1913.  Brothers William Henry (1877-1968) and George Henry (1880-1964) had moved from their native Devon to Badsey at the beginning of the century to take up market gardening.  These are typical photos of the time and probably suggest that an official photographer – or possibly Charles Binyon – took similar poses of the various market gardening families.
