“ Saturday Afternoon ”
The fisherman carrying the plaice by the gills is Robert Coulson. He is photographed here talking to his wife after having returned from a fishing trip.
Both he and his wife are holding long lines which were baited with mussels. The fishermen’s wives and daughters would often walk up to six miles along the beach collecting mussels - or ‘flithers’ as they were known locally.
