Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of a large crowd, mostly male, gathered outside a public building. The meeting is probably about a political event or announcement. A notice on the wall says: 'Commit No Nuisance - By Order'. 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.
