Footage: Ringsend fishermen 1921

Not much to say about this clip only that I love it, a one minute glimpse into the life of Ringsend/Raytown fishermen from 1921. Unfortunately a low yield this time from the nets! I love just even seeing the clothes they are wearing and the backround in the clip. The shots are taken at low tide at the South Wall with the Poolbeg Lighthouse in view. Thanks to those who’ve shared the post to help determine this.
