"The Flag of Distress"
The brig 'Mary and Agnes' being pounded ashore by a storm off Whitby beach on 24th October 1885 whilst sailing from London to Newcastle with a cargo of scrap iron, under her master, Thomas Pearson.
Sutcliffe recounts in his article, 'Concerning Wind', for the Amateur Photographer, 14th May 1903, how he enlisted the assistance of a big heavy soldier, an artillery man, who was on the beach at the time, to curl up under the tripod and steady the two legs which were catching most of the gale.
