'Cud' Colley, who appears on a number of other photographs by Frank Sutcliffe, is seen centre of the photograph, leaning against the right hand coble, on the 'Little Sands' at Coffee House Corner in Whitby lower harbour. The boats beached on the sands are cobles, typical of the North East coast and are of an ancient and traditional design dating from Viking days. Powered by sail or oars during Sutcliffe's time, they are now equipped with inboard diesel engines.
