Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of a woman kneeling on rocks and using a scrubbing brush on what could be seaweed. Seaweed has long been used to produce fertiliser and chemicals and as food. 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.
