Postcard illustrating Yarmouth's famous bloaters
Origin: Unknown, c1922?

George Dodd's 'The Food of London' (1856) relates that; "The Yarmouth arithmetic is very strange, in the numbering of fish: 4 herrings make a 'warp'; 33 warps, or 132 herrings, make a 'hundred'; and 100 hundreds, or 13,200, make a 'last.'"
