Smyths Calendar – March

mar

Our March page shows a local hunt in the late1970′s, it appeared on our 1980 calendar. The photos of the bagging process are 50 years apart, one-hundred weight bags (8 stone) were manually filled, weighed, sewn and stacked in the store, the bags were jute material. This is such a difference to the system used today, 25kg bags are filled and weighed automatically, heat-sealed and set in neat rows on a pallet by an automated system.
