Main Picture----Thats the captain of vessel.Dressed nice to impress and pipe in mouth and cleaned shaved I think thats the scene when they come on shore after a big catch otherwise at sea he might not get time for shaving for his whole stay and with no sleep at all for few days.And to get big catch all depends upon luck,few days back I was watching "Perfect Storm" first when they didnt had luck with fish then they deviate from their regular path and find luck at some other part of sea.But ultimately that brings hell on their life.That was very touching movie.And here also we can see some of their life after visiting Fishing Heritage Center.
Second Picture---Here its all ancient radio/communication equipment are kept for display.
Third Picture---Old daily newspaper of those days.
Fourth Picture---During those days in Grimsby only two activities were talk of the town,one is fishing and other its local football team.Even they named trawlers as "The Mariners".Sailors went on to sea with hope when they return their team might have achieved some great things and also at sea talk of their home team keep them occupied even dring high stressful day.Its really quite strange that first Grimsby football team established during 1879 yes its true.And intially players used to put on stripped shirt and with black pants which is visible in picture.
Fifth Picture--And in this picture we can see sailor enjoying his leisure time at smoke room sitting coffee and smoking.
