Ocean Toiler built at Oulton Broad in 1915, 88.3 x 19.5 x 9.8, 98grt and 26nhp, wood, owned by Bloomfields Ltd South Denes, Great Yarmouth.

Ocean Treasure built Lowestoft 1913, 84.4 x 19.6 x 10.1, 92grt and 25nhp, wood, same owners both Neil Mackay manager in 1932. With the low horse power they are both much more likely to be herring drifters rather than trawlers.

Amazing to see the young woman in the middle, she's smoking a cigarette.
Not so usual in those (good) old days, I guess ?

I think this picture decipts a Sunday in port when the herring girls and the drifter men had some time off.The boats would not leave port before midnight on Sunday.I am shure many long term relationships started in this way
