Hop pickers and their dog in an unknown hop field

An elderly man and woman are standing behind four baskets of hops in a Willamette Valley hop field. The woman is wearing a dress, which was typical of older women working in the hops. Their dog is sitting in front, chained to a basket. It was common for hop pickers to bring both dogs and children to the hop yards where families might be camped for a month while the crop was harvested., Courtesy of Oregon State Library
