Herring Heaven

I've been writing about the collections in The Herring Era Museum - Síldarminjasafnið - in Siglufjörður, Iceland. One of my chosen highlights is their collection of food tins dating back to the 1960s, when the fishing industry was booming in the region and exporting herring all over the world. 

So here's a chart of my top ten herring tins:

I saw a wonderful tin in Greece once but it was sardines, I think. So I guess that doesn't count. It looked as if it had been designed in Victorian times but you could easily buy one in the shop.
