Another ordinary day at the Fish Shed
The newly-organized leysamfoto.com group composed of local photo hobbyists and enthusiasts went on a photoshoot recently at the Tacloban Fish Shed located at Old Road, Sagkahan District, Tacloban City.
The Tacloban Fish Shed came into being as more fishing boats coming in from the sea made it their preferred docking point (instead of at the old Tacloban Public Market) to unload their fish catch. As more and more fishing boats unloaded their catch at the area, it became the major fresh fish trading center for the city. Naturally, a wet market followed suit selling not only fresh seafoods but also vegetables, poultry and meat, and all other food and cooking essentials.
