Black and white image of a man and a woman picking filberts in an orchard. Three filled sacks stand to the left of the image, a man with a bucket standing just beyond the furthest sack. A woman kneels on the ground next to a bucket and appears to be picking filberts from the ground. Today (2012), Oregon produces all but a tiny fraction of the United States hazelnut crop. Many of those orchards are in Washington County. This photo was part of the Herbert McMullen bequest. McMullen was a local photographer who, in addition to taking his own photographs, collected images that depicted daily life in the area.
