Mending nets, South Bristol, ca. 1950
In this image two South Bristol fishermen sit on Irving Clifford's dock on the eastern Gut, mending cotton fishing nets by hand in preparation for the next ground fishing catch. Note the cork floats attached to the edges of the nets. The individual on the left is Henry Jones, one of South Bristol's best-known fishermen.
