“Through the Station Doorway”
Taken on 19th September 1895, Whitby Dock End in the upper harbour, framed by the entrance to the North Eastern Railway Company's town station. This area has changed considerably since Sutcliffe's time with quite a large section of the harbour having been reclaimed and developed.
From an extract on engravings by H. S. Percy in The Art Journal 1895 he says . . . 'it is hardly fair however, to produce this as one of Mr Sutcliffe's photographs. Those who know his work will recognise that it is anything but one of his best. Still the end of Bagdale Beck, which has been filled in within the last year or so, will always be of interest to the town of Whitby, for hard by, Cook's immortal ships the 'Resolution' & Endeavour' were built.
