Thread Name: Whitby. Was it always in August?

No, Jim the Fish was Jim Parkinson. He used to turn up with a fish lorry/pickup. At the annual booksale on Bank Holiday Monday on the bandstand we were all there looking for antiquarian material and Jim rolls up, buys 5 yards of books and chucks 'em in the back of the pick-up and off he goes. This would have been about 1969.

He moved away to live in Bristol where he died some years back.
