Fishwife in Calton

A woman selling fish from a barrow in Tobago Street in Calton in the early 20th century.

Fish sellers were a common sight in Calton's streets. At one point there were so many operating from barrows in and around the Gallowgate that there was a close there known as "Herring Close".
