Stunning documentary images. I hope that one day, this book becomes a unique cultural document, of a way of life, unknown to those who were not there.
An impressive body of work. It is the most thorough look at a fishing community I have seen in the UK.
Stunning evocative images documenting the life on the dock, but also sad to realise that so much has gone.
Fabulous! A wonderful documentation of a lost way of life. Beautifully photographed.
Extremely interesting to see living history. Excellent photographs. Very inspirational.
Very interesting read and has excellent quality photography.
A fascinating period of British history and superb B&W photography. Some images will have a life way beyond this book.
