'The secret of enjoying the history of the Yorkshire fishing industry involved two aspects' says Ron Freethy in this new book. 'Visit the museums and talk to the volunteers and visit the harbour and talk to the boatmen'. For those who for one reason or another cannot do either of these things, this book with its first-hand accounts, local anecdotes, well-researched stories and contemporary photographs provides the perfect alternative. The major local ports include Whitby, Staithes, Flamborough, Robin Hood's Bay, Scarborough, Filey, Bridlington and Hull. By far the largest was Hull. This book captures the heyday of the local fishing industry and records for all time a way of life that has now gone for ever.
