Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) using a No 4A folding Kodak camera. The ship is unidentified but is flying what looks like the Red Ensign or Red Duster. 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.
