Fishwife With Creel And Skull In Morningside 1930s


About this memory

Betty Watson.

"The creel was where they kept the heads and skins from the fish. The skull was used for carrying the fish, where they laid a board on it for filleting. A broad belt supports the creel, crossing over the forehead for carrying it" - Elizabeth Brockie (née Clement, daughter)
