“Cornish Boats at Whitby”
New Quay, Whitby with the Cornish luggers 'Hope' and 'Glance'. During the latter part of the 19th century and up until the First World War the Cornish fishing fleet fished off the west Cornish coast for mackerel and pilchard and along the Irish Sea for Herring. After passing through the Caledonian Canal into the North Sea, they followed the herring shoals as they moved south, landing their catches at Whitby during the late summer and early autumn.
This photograph has about it a Sunday afternoon feeling of sedate leisureliness. Taken in the 1890's by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe.
