Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of a crowd of people jammed between buildings. All wear hats, even the children, and most are looking at the camera. 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.
