High and Dry
"In the late spring 'trapmen' would be busy in their 'store lofts' mending the nets....it was an area where cod traps, trawls and other fishing equipment were stored in winter, and where dry fish was stored during the curing process in late summer and early fall. The loft usually cantained a small stove for warmth."
