Email from Eliza’s granddaughter Apr 2021: Born 12/11/1896 in Broadsea, Fraserburgh. She had a big picture in her spare bedroom of her with her factory uniform on. My sister may have a smaller copy. I will check with her.She came from a long standing fishing family so this would have been her first time away from her family and no doubt earning what a fisherman took months to earn, most of her earnings would have been sent home. She had her creel in the glory hole of her house and she told us she used to take the fish round to the farms and trade them for milk and butter when she was younger and before going to the factory.’
