Description

The barrels on the quay possibly contain salted fish, and the blurred figures are probably female fish-gutters. This photograph was taken by a photographer doing a tour of England and Scotland in a Pullman train. The party visited Haddon Hall in Derbyshire, Melrose Abbey and Bristol, amongst other places. The coming of the railways made it easier for people to take excursions and see different parts of Britain.
