Cotton workers queue up to buy refreshments from a trolley at a cotton mill, somewhere in Lancashire. According to the original caption, "this trolley comes round twice a day from the works canteen. Tea and sandwiches are excellent, and cheap. Before the war canteen facilities were practically unknown in the cotton mills".
