1029 : Return To Lochinver


I took this photograph at Grimsby Fish Docks in the mid 1980s. For some reason I was attracted to the Fish Docks in that decade and would frequently visit there on misty mornings. There was something always slightly exotic about the place - or maybe that should be something slightly fishy. These old fish boxes seemed to sum it up.

Were you aware that Grimsby is twinned with Port Stanley?

I'm wishing these were full of kippers and one of them on their way here.

Does Port Stanley care?

Chairman Bill said...

Probably wants to be twinned with Buenos Aires....

Terrific picture. And Return to Lochinver would make a great book title...

Wooden fishboxes are relegated to the pages history now, replaced by plastic - which doesn't biodegrade, won't burn, can't be repaired or turned into furniture or used as kindling.
They say you can't stand in the way of progress, but I miss old fashioned wooden fishboxes when I'm beachcombing.
