Synopsis

Yorkshire Fisherfolk by Peter Frank

This fascinating book is a history of the inshore fishing communities between the Tees and the Humber. It describes the fishing seasons and boats and gear they employed and the patterns of domestic life that supported these unique societies. For centuries the knowledge which sustained the traditional culture was passed from generation to generation, but following the introduction of the internal combustion engine to fishing local memories began to fade. In the 1970s Professor Frank set about rescuing as much of that knowledge as survived and this much admired book is the result. The book is richly illustrated with photographs by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe and paintings by J.R. Bagshawe.
