Towing the Reed by Boat, Peter Henry Emerson, 1885 - 1886

paper, h 220mm × w 272mm. More details

Used in the construction of houses, reed was an important product in East Anglia. Emerson shows how the reed was harvested and processed in various photographs in Life and Landscape on the Norfolk Broads. Here we see a man on a towing path pulling a fully loaded boat. This more sociological angle typifies Emerson’s publications.
