Title based on contents of photograph
Newspaper clipping on verso of photograph reads: "WET WORK... Plastic sheets and broad straw hats protect field workers from the cool, wet elements at a farm on the Burnaby flats near Meadow Street this week. More seasonal weather, however, including rising temperatures and clearly [sic] skies, promises that life in the onion fields will be more tolerable, at least for the next little while."
