“Group in Henrietta Street”
Taken at the seaward end of Henrietta Street the five fishergirls taking a rest from their daily chores are Elizabeth Smith, Charlotte Constable, Elizabeth Leng, Ada Young and Sally Burnside. The name of the old gentleman is not known but he appears on another of Sutcliffe’s photographs.
The ancient name of this street was Haggerlythe meaning uneven cut in the cliffside. Sir Nathaniel Cholmley, Lord of the Manor renamed it after his wife, Henrietta.
