In Main picture we can see woman quite occupied with Fish net weaving.When you walk around "ROSS TIGER" we can see Fishing Net made of yarn or some basic material and over the period of time they shifted to nylon Fishing net.Our guide during vessel's visit he showed us how to do weaving thats because his grand father might have taught him how to use one special tool for weaving.And women also shared lil burden of men by doing lil jobs for them.

Second & Third Picture--Here we can see bikes used during those days.First bike I think might have been used by ladies and second muscular bike in the background might have been used by guys.

Fourth & Fifth Picture--They were movie loving people too.I think apart from pub, movie theatre might have been greatest attraction for them.After long stay at sea and after getting down from vessel they need some recreation too.And during those old days they didnt had anything onboard for entertainment apart from talking with each other and smoking.And after working there for around 18 hours in a day they cant even think of watching movie if they had that kind of facilities.
