Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of a little girl lining up the toy people and pairs of animals on the table in front of a withered bunch of flowers. The Ark rests on the chair behind her. Sutcliffe is best known for his naturalistic and spontaneous style of photography, especially his portrayals of Whitby's fishing community. He was a founder member of The Linked Ring Brotherhood and was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in 1941.
