Asparagus harvest in the 1920s

The picture shows a group of people sitting on a wagon showing off a wonderful harvest of asparagus some of whom are holding cutting knives. The photo was kindly lent to us by Lorna Edmunds. Her husband's grand-father, John Henry Bird (born 1904), sits on the far left. Lorna wonders if anyone can throw light on the other people in the picture?

Looking Back is an assortment of old photographs around the villages of Badsey and Aldington in Worcestershire.
