Very High Farming
'Very High Farming', 1870. Science stands in a field holding a telegraph pole, complete with wires. The representative of the country's farmers, scratches his head in wonder. This relates to the recent telegraphic links with India. The man who is responsible for feeding the country, whilst impressed, is more concerned that the weather should be kind to his crops and asks if a link might be established with St Swithin. Technology is starting to make its presence felt in the previously untouched rural areas, as illustrated by the now familiar telegraph poles in the background. The farmer is a weathered and rotund figure. It is rather difficult to tell just what part of the country he represents as he seems to speak in a variety of different accents. From Punch, or the London Charivari, July 9, 1870.
