Fish women

What we know about this image :

Scottish fisher lassies, or 'fish women', taken on the Fish Quay, old Hartlepool. They are waiting for the next catch of herring to be landed so they can gut and clean the fish, before packing them in barrels of salt, ready for transport. The coal drops and old Hartlepool railway station - sometimes referred to as East Hartlepool - can be seen behind them.
