The Women's Land Army in Old Photographs by Bob Powell
This text collects black-and-white photographs which together record not only the operations of the WLA, but also scenes of the countryside between 1939 and 1950. The collection, drawn from the albums of many ex-land girls, offers an insight into the people and places associated with the WLA. Many of the pictures are published for the first time and each is captioned, providing names and dates where possible, revealing historical and anecdotal detail which gives life to the scenes and personalities captured. Presenting training, occupations and the social activities of the Land Army women, the collection should evoke wartime memories and provide inspiration through its images of hope, strength and unity.
