The Old Fish Lady
Hi there does anyone remember the Fish lady in Garston in the 40s and 50s ? I think my mum said her name was Emma, apparently she used to push this barrow around the streets of Garston and probably a lot of other places. Love to hear about this lady if anyone has got any memories of her.x
Sounds like a real character!
This may not help! but the only family I can remember conected with 'fishing' in Garston in the early days before the war started were the 'Slacks' Fred Slack used to have a shrimp boat I believe, and most of the pubs around Garston would have benefited by his supply of shrimps, and probably some of the shops too. I have memories of my grandmother in Byrom Street shelling shrimp for the Slack family.

I think there was a fishshop in King St in the early days before the war, and the only other seller I can think of was on Garston Market!
