Herring gutters and packers
Herring being gutted, salted and packed in barrels for export to the Baltic.

Silver City Vault user Ed Fowler got in touch to point out the following:

"This is claimed to be Aberdeen but if it were at Point Law - the only compatible place - the skate-nose and inner breakwater would be evident as would the other Girdleness/Torry features. As one of the fishing luggers has a CT (Castletown) Port Registration it suggests these barrels are being loaded on ships for export from the Isle of Man and the Packer and Coopers may be Manx. The larger loading and loaded ships are not of a familiar rig to those of Scotland"
