"I loved reading about the
fishwives selling their buckies etc.
Aunt, Rebecca Hartley,
was a fishwife from Leith and used to sell her
buckies in and around Leith in the
1940s and 1950s.
I'd love to hear from anyone who may have
known her. My Mum said she remembers a
picture of her wearing the full Fishwife's outfit, carrying
her basket on her back with the thick leather belt across her forehead.
this photo has been lost in time."
