Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of a boat moored at the edge of the harbour. This is a very tranquil photograph, taken from just above the water level and showing the boat's reflection in the ripples. 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.
