"Herring Season, Whitby"
The call of the sea has always been strong amongst the menfolk of Whitby and one of their busiest periods was when the herring shoals worked their way down the East Coast.
This scene in the upper harbour was typical of late July and August when the barrels of salted herring, seen here stacked at the quayside, were taken to inland markets by special fish trains.
