Gathering Pineapples, 1912

EDITORS COMMENTS
is a captivating print that encapsulates the essence of agriculture in the West Indies during the early 20th century. The artist, Charles Robinson, skillfully portrays a scene of female workers harvesting pineapples on a vibrant plantation. This image was featured in Alice Talwin Morris' book "More About The Empire" which aimed to shed light on various aspects of life within the British Empire. In this monochrome portrait, we see a solitary lady amidst lush farmland, holding freshly picked pineapples with pride. Her presence symbolizes the resilience and hard work exhibited by local people who dedicated themselves to cultivating these tropical fruits. Through her determined gaze and poised stance, she embodies the spirit of countless workers who contributed to sustaining their communities through agricultural labor. The print not only serves as an artistic representation but also offers valuable insights into historical practices surrounding pineapple cultivation in this region. It provides us with a glimpse into an era when manual labor played an integral role in sustaining economies within colonial territories. As we admire this snapshot frozen in time, we are reminded of both the beauty and challenges associated with working on plantations during that period. "Gathering Pineapples, 1912" stands as a testament to human perseverance and pays homage to those whose efforts shaped our understanding of agriculture's significance within societies across the British Empire.
