“Umbrella Seller”
Taken in Strickland's Yard, The Cragg, Whitby. The lady standing to the right of the umbrella seller is Mrs Esther Winspear who lost both her brothers and father in the 1861 lifeboat disaster. The man in the doorway is John Hill, said to have been born about 1790. He was a bathing machine proprietor.
This is one of Sutcliffe's earlier photographs, taken before he had fully acquired the ability to completely relax his subjects and it has about it a somewhat theatrical quality.
