actual image size: 32cm x 19cm


Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of men presumably hauling a boat in, taken using a No 3A Folding Pocket Kodak camera. On the left is part of a crane which would have been used to load and unload the ships. Sutcliffe focuses on the work of the men rather than the ships. He 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.
