Hurst’s seeds, interior of new long building with sorting machine and sacks. The sacks had all different sorts of seed in, and different mixtures were made for different purposes. Before this building was put up and the new machine bought, it was done by hand in the prizewinning glass warehouse built in 1956. The machine was in the shape of a cross, with scales, hoppers etc., for whatever mix was required. E.g. special for Arsenal football pitch. The copy in the album was made from a copy neg taken from a print. The scanned version on the computer was made from the original negative; this latter may be the clearer version but has not been printed out.
