Description

Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of women sorting the day's catch in large wooden troughs on the quayside, their forearms covered in gore. Women had the task of gutting the fish before it was salted in barrels or went fresh to market. 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.
