Whitby Fish Quay and Market

Whitby Fish Quay and Market

Viewed from the famous 199 steps, this 1960s view of the fish quay and market is still unchanged today, although the numbers of boats regularly using the quay and market is now much reduced. Also the long familiar ice making equip ment is now gone. But the hopeful younger fishermen still throng the harbour sides fishing for crabs and fish.

    This picture is from the mid 80’s
    I recognise the Arun class lifeboat on the pier with the Helga Mari opposite, the modern boats on the fish quay as well.
