Herring Girls, Great Yarmouth a98_17150

Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. A group of women, possibly Scottish herring girls, on the quay with herring boats beyond. Although the herring trade began to decline in the 1930s due to increased competition from a wider range of tinned foods, the herring girls continued to follow the migrating shoals in the early post-War years. Photographed by Hallam Ashley in November 1947

EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, titled "Herring Girls, Great Yarmouth a98_17150" transports us back to the bustling quay of Great Yarmouth in Norfolk. Taken by Hallam Ashley in November 1947, it captures a group of women standing proudly on the quayside, their faces etched with determination and resilience. These women are believed to be Scottish herring girls who followed the migrating shoals during the early post-War years. Beyond them, we catch a glimpse of herring boats bobbing gently in the water - symbols of an industry that was once thriving but would soon face decline. During this period, competition from tinned foods began to chip away at the herring trade's dominance. Yet these resilient herring girls continued their arduous work despite mounting challenges. Their presence on this historic photograph is a testament to their unwavering spirit and dedication. The composition also features a lamp post towering over them - perhaps serving as both a symbol of hope and illumination amidst uncertain times. The inclusion of people going about their daily lives adds depth and authenticity to this snapshot frozen in time. Hallam Ashley's lens captured not just an image but also encapsulated an era marked by change and perseverance. This print serves as a poignant reminder of those who shaped our history through hard work and determination – leaving behind an indelible mark on Great Yarmouth's maritime heritage.
