The Early Days
This group of unemployed men from Poole were photographed at Bushell Mill Farm as part of a scheme to cultivate allotments. The initiative was undertaken between Poole Allotment Association and the Unemployed Fellowship. The photograph was published in the Poole and Parkstone Standard on 2nd April 1936.
