Pages of History: Fish market on wheels’ night catch

From the pages of the Crescent City American, March 1927.

Eli Collins, who runs a fish market on wheels, was supplying townspeople with what are termed here as “night fish.” They are a species of smelt, caught only at night during high tide at certain seasons, and only at portions of beaches where minute gravel deposits.

Monday night proved to be good due to the breaking of the storm and Eli was out with the fish in his market on wheels the next day.
