JDC 414.tif
Similar to JDC 413, looking in the opposite direction, ie, down the harbour to the South Pier in the distance. About half tide. Mount's Bay luggers alongside the North Pier. Early fish agents had their wooden sheds on the North Pier.

Before the harbour offices were built. Punts landing fish catches. Horse and donkey carts of the fish hawkers waiting to ferry away the catch. Merchant's boxes and baskets stacked on the North Pier. You can just see the stern of a punt with the name…

JDC 384.tif
The Old Pier (Medieval) and a Mount's Bay lugger aground in the harbour foreground, with many more anchored off shore in Gwavas Lake. Fish being landed in small punts to the waiting 'Jousters' with their wicket baskets and donkey carts. This is the…
