English: "Ploughing Match", Sydney, Australia, around 1900 – Silver gelatin dry plate glass negative in landscape format. The image depicts a ploughing competition at what appears to be an agricultural show. The competition is between teams of two-horse single-furrow mouldboard ploughs. Five teams are depicted in the image and numerous strips of alterate furrowed and unfurrowed land can be seen. One of the plough teams is depicted in the foregound of the image. The team consists of two horses harnessed to a single-furrow mouldboard plough which is hand controlled by a man walking behind the plough. A man can be seen in the foreground on the left side of the image, he is holding an axe and looking towards the plough team. Crowds of people can be seen in the background of the image. The crowds appear to be attending an agricultural show. Horse drawn vehicles and horses can also be seen in the background. A hill is depicted in the far background of the image.
