Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of a boy and his dog at the pier. The rough seas seem to have churned the water into thick foam. 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.
