Hops Pickers, Old School

I've been researching different ways of arranging a hops garden. Hops are climbing vines, so some people have them go twenty feet high, some only twelve feet. Some attach the trellises to their roofs at one end. (I shudder to think of what Norm Abram would say about that!) We've bought the plants already (100 of them, four varieties), and I'm looking into just how high I want to make the trellises, taking into consideration that we have to have some way of picking the flowers, which (you probably already know) is the part one uses for making beer. I stumbled upon a method which I don't think I will try, but it's a photograph worthy of sharing:

Hops farming level: Hard Core.

P.S. Is that guy smoking a pipe?
