Women making butter at a dairy institute


A cabinet card showing women at the Eastern Counties Dairy Institute, photographed in the mid-1890s. The following is an extract from an Ipswich newspaper dated 1893: 'A ten day series of dairy classes has lately been given Miss Blackshaw the principal lecturer for the Eastern Counties Dairy Institute. The classes were held in a barn at Street farm [and] were well attended by pupils and others. The pupils, who each had a churn, are the wives and daughters of farmers as well as bailiff's wives.'

Photographed by W. Bond of Norwich.
