Grimsby: The Story of the World’s Greatest Fishing Port

Peter Chapman

Grimsby was a phenomenon. In the space of 100 years, from 1800 to 1900, its population soared from 1,000 past 63,000 and it rose to become the premier fishing port in the world. But over the last 50 years, for reasons beyond its control, its importance has dramatically diminished. Here, the town’s rise and demise are retold with illustrations.
