The village of Helmsdale in the north of Scotland was once a major fishing port. Located in Sutherland, the local community caught and cured herring on a vast scale. This reconstruction is part of our case study and shows how the harbour and fish curing facilities at Helmsdale may have looked in the 1890s, near the height of the herring trade.
It is one of the CINE case studies.
