Title of Work:  Hay loads
Date of Work:  1947
Medium:  photograph
Period/Style:  twentieth century
URL:  http://www.corbis.com/
Citation:  HU041850
Index Words:  hayfield, wagon, oxen, horses, women, gender, war
Place:  Germany
Notes:  This postwar image from Hanover is notable, both for the unusual mix of draft-animals -- both oxen and horses are harnessed to the hay wagons -- and for the number of women at work. Of the thirteen figures, at least eleven are female, a reflection, perhaps, of the shortage of male labor in the postwar period.

Image: Gathering in the harvest
ID:  1452
Artist:  unknown
Artist Birth Date:  
Artist Death Date:  
Artist Country: British
Title of Work:  Gathering in the harvest
Date of Work:  1947
Medium:  photograph
Period/Style:  twentieth century
URL:  http://www.corbis.com/
Citation:  HU006902
Index Words:  haystacks, wagon, horse
Place:  England
Notes:  Corbis has the following caption : 'hay ricks being built near Gravesend, England, in the summer of 1947.' The foreground stacks which frame the action look like hay, but the shape and texture of the middle one are as ambiguous as the word 'harvest' in the main heading. Compare the 1947 German image dominated by women workers; this one is all male.

ID:  1453

Artist Birth Date:  1914
Artist Death Date:  1975
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Bringing in feed
Date of Work:  1948
Medium:  photograph
Period/Style:  twentieth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/1453.jpg
Citation:  Conrat, Maisie and Richard. The American farm: a photographic history. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1977, p. 166.
Index Words:  fodder, winter, snow, sled, horses, FSA
Place:  South Dakota
Notes:  The horses and sled at far right are dwarfed by the snowscape and the immense white sky above them. The preposition in the title suggests that the source of the hay is a field stack, and that the animals are indoors.

Image: Shocking hay on a Sussex County dairy farm [NJ]
ID:  1454
Artist:  Vachon, John
Artist Birth Date:  1914
Artist Death Date:  1975
Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Shocking hay on a Sussex County dairy farm [NJ]
Date of Work:  1947
Medium:  photograph
Period/Style:  twentieth century
URL:  http://www.hayinart.com/images/1454.jpg
Citation:  Harper, Douglas. Changing works: visions of a lost agriculture. University of Chicago, 2001, p. 90
Index Words:  hay-cocks, hayfield, FSA
Place:  New Jersey
Notes:  The word 'shocking' is elsewhere (and perhaps mostly) given to shooks or stooks of sheaves of grain. But Harper's captions are usually very accurate, and so we can infer that in rural New Jersey the word refers to the construction of haycocks.
