Fisherwomen and girls on Fisherrow Scap getting bait for their family’s boats 1903


About this memory

A group photograph taken on Fisherrow Scap. Left to right: Mary Naysmith, Rebecca Gibson, Lucy Gibson, Leezie Slight and Janet Naysmith. Janet dies in 1903 so this photo must have been taken prior to that date. These women and girls would be digging daily for bait for line fishing off their families boats sailing out of Fisherrow Harbour.
