Teresa Mallett is standing at the foot of the steps of a cottage, carrying a wooden barrel pail. Port Gaverne was once a busy port used to export slate from the nearby Delabole slate quarry. It was also a very active seining port and the port's four pilchard cellars were capable of processing around 1000 tons of fish per week. By 1900 tourism was the village's main industry and it remains popular with holidaymakers today. Photographer: Herbert Hughes.
