  • Short Summary

    A look at the work of the Scottish women packing herring in Yarmouth.

  • Description

    Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.

    Intertitle: "FINE YARMOUTH BLOATER! Scottish fisher-girls have arrived to pack and cure the herring 'harvest'".

    Lovely C/U of Scottish women wearing scarves on their heads - they laugh uproariously and hug each other. M/S of the women carrying baskets of herring past an enormous stack of barrels. M/S of the women at work packing the fish.

    Note: good item showing female friendship and women at work.
