Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) of two women talking on their doorsteps as a neighbour looks on, probably taken in Whitby in North Yorkshire or one of its surrounding coastal villages. The seated woman is holding a baby up so the elderly woman standing next to her can see the child. 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.
