The Fishing Industry from Wick to Whitby ..
Gloria Wilson book which contains a collection of photographs and drawings is a personal celebration of fisher people, harbours and boats used along the coast of Scotland and and parts of the North East.The coastal communities of Scotland and north-east England have always looked to the sea, and the ocean has played a vital role in the development of coastal culture and industry.
This collection of photographs and drawings is a personal celebration of fisher people, harbours and boats used along the coast of Scotland and parts of the North East. Often selected for their aesthetic appeal, these pictures are not intended to form a complete record of vessels and fishing communities, but rather, to show an appreciation of the classic wooden-hulled, cruiser-sterned seine netters and dual-purpose craft. Many of these splendid boats have perished under decommissioning schemes of recent years and so this book could be seen as a lament to a passing era and will undoubtedly evoke many strong memories.
The book is well illustrated with black/white photographs. .
