Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of four smartly-dressed ladies, possibly members of Sutcliffe's family. They are possibly resting at the waterfall during a countryside walk. Although there is no indication of exactly where this photograph was taken, it is likely to be North Yorkshire as Sutcliffe took other photographs of waterfalls at a beck near Robin Hood's Bay. 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.
