Photographic postcard of five fishermen tracking a boat out of Pothleven harbour, 1930s-1950s. Tracking is the practice of pulling a boat out of the harbour to catch the wind at the end of the pier. The fishermen are on the pier pulling one boat and another boat is following. Bay View Terrace and the Coastguard Cottages in Peverell Road are in the background. Photograph by A H Hawke of Helston.
