Fishing Boat

Latest 1750+

Near the Docks

 

This one has been identified in 1750, and I am pretty sure it is not to be confused with the other "Fishing Boat" identified as being at Fishmonger's Lane as that one was said to be newly built in a paper of 1852, yet identified as existing as early as 1848.

 

From the Kentish Post or Canterbury News-Letter, August 30th 1750. Kindly sent from Alec Hasenson.

Sale by auction of a Folkestone Cutter at the Sign of the Fishing Boat, near the Old Dock in Dover, August 30th, 1750.
