Girl dressed as Newhaven fishwife
Black and white photograph of a young girl dressed as a Newhaven fishwife. She wears the 'gala' costume of striped petticoats, colourful blouse or 'shor' goon' and a headscarf. She is carrying a creel (fish basket) on her back, with a strap around her head. A woman stands behind her in a tweed skirt suit and jacket. They are standing on a lawn in front of a bay-windowed house. In front of the window is a garden bench.
