and two other Newhaven Fishwives

Thank you to Margaret Wallace for allowing me to reproduce some old Newhaven photographs from her family collection.

Here is a photograph of three Newhaven Fishwives (or to be accurate, about two and a half fishwives!) .  The one on the right is Elizabeth Logan Seaton.  I don't know the names of the other two.

 Family Photos

"I was going through some old photos left to my children by their grandmother who grew up in Edinburgh on Starbank Road.

I found Photo 2 below.  It includes her grandmother on the right, dressed in fisher woman's choir costume. 

I never knew how my mother in law grew up.  What an amazing lifestyle they had back then!"

Fishwife on the Right

"If I'm correct, the lady on the right in Photo 2  is the same lady as is  in the middle in Photo 1, Ann Flucker Ramsay."

Fishwife on the Left

"The lady on the left of Photo 2  is identified on the back of the photo as being 'Jean'.  I assume that she is Jean Ramsay, wife of Raeburn Ramsay, the  son of Ann Flucker Ramsay (above)."
