‘People of the Twentieth Century’ by August Sander (1876-1964)
August Sander provides an extensive encyclopedia into a Germany of the past through his seven categories of occupations: The farmer, the skilled tradesman, the woman, classes and professions, the artist, the city and the last people (the social misfits or disabled). Apparently beginning in 1909, photographing farmers, Sander shows us the people that represented German society at the time and inevitably what these distinctions meant to him.

The Farmers Arms Poem
According to research the poem dates from the late 18th century and it featured on many different forms of pottery created in England.
Let the Wealthy & Great,
Roll in Splendour & State,
I envy them not I declare it.
I eat my own Lamb,
My chickens and Ham,
I shear my own Fleece & I wear it.
I have Lawns, I have Bow'rs,
I have Fruits, I have Flow'rs,
The Lark is my morning alarmer.
So jolly boys now, Here's God speed the Plough.
Long life & Succefs to the Farmer.
