    A warning, perhaps, not to take things on face value…

    Fishergirls? Patience Storey, born in 1894, by the age of 18 was in service at St. Thomas’ Hospital on the opposite bank of London’s Houses of Parliament… an adventure no other, ‘normal’ fishlass ever ventured upon!

    And ‘Lizzie Proudfoot’ is going to have be a nickname, for in reality there lived no such family in Cullercoats.

    All in all, mind you, it remains one of the best portraits of Cullercoats, well, ‘fishergirls’! 🙂
