Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of boys, with trouser-legs rolled up, pushing a boat into the water, possibly at Whitby Harbour in North Yorkshire. 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.
