Workers’ Tent Camp 1893

The image shows a tent camp for hop pickers in Puget Sound. The image is dated 1893. The tents all appear to be a canvas A-wall design. Notice that the fire wood is fed into the fire from the side rather than being chopped to size.

Puget Sound area tent camp with hop pickers, Washington, ca. 1893.
