1900's England: Packing Tea

Packing tea at Butler's Wharf, London (Photo from BBC)

Large amounts of casual labour were required when trade was good because almost all the work of moving and loading goods was done by hand. Here tea is being weighed and packed into tea chests.

Sorry for the deletion, I'm full of typos this morning.
This is a great series of tea photos -- certainly a unique look at the tea we enjoy!

Came via Smitten with Britain - wow, you really are a tea fan. For some reason I also have the Tea at the Ritz book, but it must be for show as I've never actually made anything from it.
Have you tried the Earl Grey Creme from Argot teas? Gorgeous. My favorite tea.
