Factory work

Women worked at the Frimley Canning Factory in Hawke's Bay, canning peaches, pears, apricots, tomatoes, beans and peas, and making jams, pickles, spices and baking powder. By 1910, when this photograph was taken, the factory would have been regularly visited by Department of Labour inspectors. Safety, excessive cold or heat, and the provision of toilets were all monitored.
