Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941), looking south over rooftops from the Spion Kop viewpoint at the top of West Cliff in Whitby. It was from this site, during a visit to Whitby in 1893, that Abraham 'Bram' Stoker (1847-1912) was inspired to write 'Dracula ' (1897). 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.
