The years 1880-1920 saw the final days of commercial fishing by sail and the introduction of steam on the fishing grounds. This period of rapid change had a huge effect on the lives of Cornish fishing communities: from everyday family life to religion, education and the influence of the railways. Join author Keith Harris for this illustrated talk, as he explores their stories through a mixture of fact, legend, art and humour.
