Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941). Working outside using large wooden tubs, one woman wrings the washing by hand whilst the other operates a mangle. 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.
