Watch 'A Day in the Hayfields' - 1904

A great portrait of a hot summers day in rural England in 1904 - hay being cut and collected, children playing in the hay, and then the hay being transported and stored at the farm. This was made by Cecil Hepworth, better known for his 'Rescued by Rover' (1905) which was the first international blockbuster, 'The Dog Outwits the Kidnapper' (1908), which is it's sequel, and the first ever film adaptation of Lewis Carroll's book 'Alice in Wonderland' (1903)
