Rubber tapping : general view [2]



This is a photograph from E. A. Brown's collection. It shows an Indian plantation worker tapping a rubber tree. The V-shaped cuts in the bark ensure that the latex flows down to the cup at the bottom where it can later be collected. Date of creation estimated. Title devised by Library staff. Information contributed by Richard Hale.
