A woman turns to butchery during the First World War
I am sure that there were dozens of other women in Hertfordshire just like her, wielding a meat cleaver to keep the family business running.
It would be wonderful if anyone could identify her - but I suspect this will just be another example of a portrait without a name.
A reminder - are all your precious family pictures clearly labelled so that future generations know who they are. There are millions of photographs from this period which show people who have been dehumanized by having become nameless.
