In the mid-20th century the British fishing industry was thriving and the economies of whole regions relied on the catches brought to their ports. This collection of 120 archive photographs captures the distinctive character of each area, from St Kilda in the north to the pilchard fishermen of the southwest and the herring industry that defined the east coast. The images and informative text bring to life the people and processes of this lost world.
