A new fishing book

Tommy Morrissey was a Cornish fisherman, working the fish market as a boy and working his own boat as an inshore fisherman until his retirement. From the 1920s until the late 1940s boats from Scotland and Yarmouth fished off Padstow and brought in their catch to be transported by rail to London – during the January to May season. He worked on the boats and brought their catch to fish market in Padstow; some of the boats appear in the photos of the harbour during this period.
