Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941). The man on the left is more smartly dressed indicating that he may not work at sea like the other two men dressed in their warm fishing gear. 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.
