Envisioning Women's Places: The Merry Wives O’ the Creel

Ashleigh Black, Aine Larkin

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPublished conference contribution


The University of Aberdeen George Washington Wilson Collection is an extremely diverse compilation of the photographic work of George Washington Wilson and his company GWW & Co., showcasing images from across what was then the British Empire. The project Envisioning Women's Places has been put together by Dr. Áine Larkin and Dr. Heidi Brevik-Zender. As an Assistant Curator on this project, Ashleigh Black has had the opportunity to concentrate on an area of the collection that she might not otherwise have been able to analyse. This paper will primarily discuss an image which will be included in the exhibition depicting three generations of Newhaven fishwives.
