Project Showing Their Fishing Connections
Alexander Budge submitted this picture to show winch, nets and oilskins.


Alexander Budge says, "This is an important photograph because it will show people in the future how fishing nets looked and how a machine winches them in.  They are very heavy if there is fish in them.  You can also see the sort of waterproof oilskins that fishermen wear.
