Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941). With his cart and shovel at the side of the cobbled street, the man sweeps up what is most likely horse dung. 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.
