Two women grinding grain in the yard of a house
Photographer: Hooper and Western
Medium: Photographic print
Photograph of two women grinding grain in the yard of a house in India, taken by Hooper & Western in c. 1871, from the Archaeological Survey of India. Here an elderly and a younger woman are seated at a grindstone and watched by a young boy. This is presumably one of the series of views which were shown first at the London Exhibition of 1871 and later at the Vienna Universal Exhibition of 1873.
