Overview of a fishery in 1930. Young men seem to date the stones while the girls, equipped with scrapers and wicker baskets or roasting, prepare to "détroquer" wild oysters from the fishtrap.

The title of the postcard is obviously wrong. The author confusing the footwall rocks of a fishery with simple rocks had to believe they were stacked to "trap" only oysters.
