Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of an unidentified barquentine moored at Whitby upper harbour. This is a very trim vessel with a fine figurehead and was probably used in the timber trade. 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.
