Tour Scotland Photographs: Old Photograph Fishwife Aberdeen Scotland

Old Photograph Fishwife Aberdeen Scotland

Old photograph of a Fishwife in Aberdeen, Scotland. The women who were married to the fishermen were sometimes known as " fish wives ". They were in charge of selling the fish. They usually gutted or smoked it first. They would then carry the fish in a basket, called a creel, on their backs. Women also collected the bait that the men used for fishing.
