Caption

Irish peat production. Man and woman digging for peat in Ireland in the period 1880 to 1930. Peat is an organic material that forms when plant debris decomposes in anaerobic (airless) conditions, such as in a waterlogged area like a marsh. A large proportion of the interior of Ireland consists of bogs from which peat is dug to be burnt as a fuel. This photograph forms part of the Frank and Frances Carpenter Collection, which consists of photographs on world travel and geography.
