The picture on the front label of the bottle shows women working on a fishing net. The text left and right of this picture reads:

Scotch Fisher Girls
In the 1930s these hardy girls followed the herring's seasonal cycle, travelling from the far north to all over Britain. They worked in teams of three and could handle as many as 50 herring a minute.
On there engagement they received a goodwill payment called 'Arles', this would usually be around ten shillings. They wree always referred to as "The Fisher Girls" regardless of age.
The back label reads:
