A newspaper article from the Weekly Mail, published on 28/06/1906, describing the capture of a porpoise at Solva.

The clipping reads as follows: "A GOOD FRIDAY PORPOISE AT SOLVA. Two Solva fishermen on Good Friday morning found in their net a porpoise weighing about two hundred weight, and, naturally, this bit of seasonal luck was much appreciated. This is the first porpoise caught at Solva, and the village amateur photographer, hearing of the catch, was instantly on the scene, camera in hand, and had it taken with the two fishermen standing alongside. In two hours’ time pictorial post-cards of the fish were on sale at his shop."

As described above, the image within the article was taken by local amateur photographer: C. M. Rees.
