Ox roasting at Stratford-upon-Avon Mop Fair
Scene showing an ox being roasted at the Stratford upon Avon annual Mop Fair, Warwickshire. Farm workers, labourers, servants and some craftsmen would work for their employer from October to October. At the end of the employment they would attend the Mop Fair dressed in their Sunday best clothes and carrying an item signifying their trade. A servant with no particular skills would carry a mop head hence the term Mop Fair. Employers would move amongst them discussing experience and terms, and once agreement was reached the employer would give the employee a small token of money and the employee would wear bright ribbons to indicate that they had been hired. The stalls at the fair sold food and drink, while others offered games to play.

Close up of a young girl feeding a lamb with a baby's bottle
A black and white image of a young girl dressed in overalls with a large white bow in her hair, feeding a lamb with a baby's bottle. The girl is identified as Jane Grant. In the background two other lambs chew on grass. This image was shot while filming School in the Mailbox, 1946: Nominated for an Academy Award, this film from the 1940s looks at how Australians triumphed over distance, educating the children of the outback by correspondence. These students, living far from any school, are taught from a city school where there are no pupils, only teachers. In the days before satellites, the internet or photocopying machines, School in the Mailbox shows the extraordinary organisation and planning that was involved in delivering lessons to children by plane, train, buggy, even camel and then returned to the school for correction.
