    Address formerly given as 98 Fisher Street and 30 Fisher Street. This pub was rebuilt in 1901 after being badly damaged by an explosion at a nearby factory.

    The picture is of the Fishing Smack pre 1899 before the boiler explosion. The man in the bowler hat is the landlord, Henry Seabrook. I have been told that one of the three ladies in the window above is his wife, and the other two her sisters. One of the little boys on the left is my grandfather, James G Blyth.
