Netting sheds, Lowestoft AA98_12838 Featured Fishing Print

Netting sheds, Lowestoft AA98_12838

Lowestoft, Suffolk. Interior view of stored nets in netting sheds at Shoals Yard. Fishing nets were an essential tool for the fisherman and required considerable maintenance. After each fishing trip, nets had to be laid out to dry and any tears mended. They also had to be washed regularly using a solution traditionally made of oak or birch bark to reduce damage from sea salt. They were then stored in special netting sheds.

Herring Girls, Great Yarmouth AA98_17150

Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. A group of women, possibly Scottish herring girls, on the quay with herring boats beyond. Although the herring trade began to decline in the 1930s due to increased competition from a wider range of tinned foods, the herring girls continued to follow the migrating shoals in the early post-War years. Photographed by Hallam Ashley in November 1947
