Speaking of fish, here are some fishy photos from the past. They are from the Shorpy.com vintage photo blog. Photos like these are in my inbox every morning. It's coffee and Shorpy time. This is a link to a Shorpy search on "fish".
The Shorpy photos are particularly interesting in that you can enlarge them to full screen and see some interesting details that are not visible in smaller photos. Read the comments too. They are mostly by guys and some rather sexist more in tune with the older times of the photos. Then again...maybe not so old.
Gloucester, Massachusetts, circa 1905. "Handling a cargo from the fishing banks." 8x10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company.
September 1926. "Thos. R. Shipp Co. -- C.H. Javins stand." The Charles Javins seafood stand in our second look today at Washington's old Center Market. National Photo Company Collection glass negative. February 1913. Bluffton, South Carolina. "Varn & Platt Canning Co. 10-year-old Jimmie. Been shucking 3 years. 6 pots a day, and a 11-year-old boy who shucks 7 pots. Also several members of an interesting family named Sherrica. Seven of them are in this factory. The father, mother, four girls shuck and pack. Older brother steams. 10 year old boy goes to school. Been in the oyster business 5 years. Father worked for 25 years in the Pennsylvania Coal Mine, and the oldest brother there. They said they liked the oysters business better because the family makes more."
