The Great Yarmouth Herring Industry by Colin Tooke

Using over 200 archive images, many previously unpublished, Colin Tooke has compiled a vivid collection that records this hugely important aspect of Yarmouth life and industry. Many of the faces that worked in the industry over the years will be here and the experiences and hardships of working in such a demanding environment are also brought to life in this evocative volume.
