How different from today. How many fishmongers, if any, are left? We go to some trouble to find our fish now, and expense, and they need to be delivered. In the 1950's when working on the railways, it was our "privilege" to deal with the 3 a.m. arrival of the fish train. I like to claim it was an essential part of my education.
