Liston & Brown Fishmongers

1930
Liston & Brown Fishmongers

About this memory

My Great Auntie Cissie (Elizabeth Lyle) standing outside the family fishmongers which was owned by Great Great Auntie Phemie (Euphemia Liston). Phemie was one of the last Newhaven fisherwomen to carry a creel to sell her wares. The fish was landed at Newhaven, but Phemie walked all over the city. The fishmongers was at 67 Slateford Road. It’s now part of an oriental restaurant.
