Not sure whether hooks are being baited or nets repaired. I've also guessed at the date. The buildings no longer stand (note thatched roofs) but I believe they were somewhere near the Ice House possibly just behind the Cross House.

This photo seems to be taken on Shore Street. The camera is in a slightly different place to where it is picture #803. Look carefully at the window of the building on the left, the stones around it seem identical to those visible in picture #803, the door and skylight of the cottage behind match, and there is a post on the corner of the building in the same place in both.

The woman in the picture is probably baiting a long line (scanty?).

The dates of the two pictures seem to be wrong unless the building was re-harled and patched up. The boarded-up window in 803 seems to suggest that there has been some work done.
