"Water Rats"
Probably one of Frank Sutcliffe's most famous photographs. Taken in 1886 it was first exhibited at The Photographic Society of Great Britain where King Edward VII, then Prince of Wales, saw it and had an enlargement made to hang in Marlborough House. The fact that the local clergy of Whitby 'excommunicated' Sutcliffe "for showing this print to the corruption of the other sex" has at times tended to eclipse the sheer artistic and technical brilliance of this photograph.
