000740:Fisher folk Cullercoats late 19th century

  • Description

    Description : Print of a photograph possibly from a book showing fisher folk at 'Sparrow Hall.' There is a woman standing in the doorway in the centre of the picture. A man sits facing her on the top of the open wooden steps to the doorway. A boy is sitting on a barrel in the bottom right-hand corner of the picture. There are lobster pots on the ground round the bottom of the steps. There are baskets used to carry fish piled up on the left-hand side of the picture.'Sparrow Hall' was built in Cullercoats for Thomas Dove and his wife Elizabeth in 1682. It was apparently nicknamed Sparrow Hall by the local people because there was a carved dove as well as Thomas and Elizabeth's initials carved on an east gable finial.
