"Father Catches 'Em, Mother Cooks 'Em"
Sad news via the Bridlington Free Press
Flamborough lost some of its history this week.
Our good friend from childhood days, Robert Emmerson,
of Flamborough, UK -- a brave and worthy fisherman;
an ex-member of the lifeboat crew and well known
figure at the North Landing selling his crabs and lobsters,
passed away this week at the age of 82. These photos
were taken last summer.
Though he once traveled to Spain on vacation, he didn't
think much of it in comparison to Flamborough! He was
one of the last fishermen to fish out of North Landing,
before the bulk of the industry moved to Bridlington.
In his latter years, Robert spoke to us of his commitment
as a Christian. He was a life-long Methodist.
North Landing will never be quite the same.
