Finding time to pose with their curer, this group of fisher girls sit in front of barrels which were packed with salt herring. They had a very hard life but many of them looked forward to the “good times” at the fishing. They would normally work until nine or ten o’clock at night and if there was a “big fishing” in they were “dead beat”; just time for a wash and bed! They were paid 3d per hour or 9d per barrel in some ports. Among this group of hard-working women is Maggie Jack and the Allison sisters. Do you know any of the others?
