Herring drifters in the North Sea

Charles Pears 1873 - 1958

Summary

Several boats fishing under a starlit night sky. Nets in the water emit a green glow as they are hauled in by figures. In the background the ligts of the coast can be seen. This poster was commissioned by the Empire Marketing Board and produced at a reduced size so it could be distributed to schools and used as a teaching aid.
