Frank Meadow Sutcliffe: 1901 Rowing Crew
Frank Meadow Sutcliffe is a turn of the last century photographer best known for his study of a group of naked boys in the harbour at Whitby called "Water Rats" and two or three other similar photographs. Flicking through a book of his photos today I came across this handsome bunch: a Whitby Friendship Rowing Club crew in 1901. And for completeness I shall tell you that they are, from left to right: J, Pearson, T. Henderson, A. Thompson, J. Howard and seated is their cox R. Coulson.
