|All the farm work was done like this. Back breaking stoop
One time I watched two girls moving water from one field
to another. They had a basket with maybe 6 feet of cord
on two sides. Each held the end of one cord. They would
bend over, dropping the basket into the field being
emptied, then straighten up. This dumped the water in the
field to be filled. They did this for hours.
