Seven men of various ages, presumably fishermen, sitting on a bench against a stone building in Porthleven at the bottom of Salt Cellar Hill. All are wearing hats and are looking into the distance, except one elderly bearded gentleman, wearing a guernsey jumper and Breton style fishermans cap. The style of clothing dates the image to about the 1920s or 1930s. Photograph by A H Hawke of Helston.
