Embo fishwife

B/w laser photocopy of photo of a page from a book with a side on view of an Embo fishwife showing her dress and the way the creel is supported by the strap or crioslach that goes round the hips and creates a pad of material to help stop the creel rubbing. The upper strap that goes over the arms is the iris.
