Sepia Saturday

Hop House In Lowell : Sepia Saturday 496 Header

Above is a bunch of people posing in front of a Hop House, I can’t easily find a definition of Hop House, but found all sorts of other terms like Hoop House and Hip House, which is connected to Hip Hop music. I’m guessing it’s where hop is processed to make beer.

I found some photos of people who worked with hops.
