“The Haven under the Hill”
Whitby town and lower harbour taken from the east cliff. One of the most dramatic and atmospheric photographs in the collection of work by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe. This is from an early duplicate negative and the impressionistic effect is almost certainly the result of Sutcliffe having used a bromoil print as an intermediate from which he made the copy negative. The roof-tops of Henrietta Street can be seen in the foreground.
It is easy to imagine why Bram Stoker set a substantial part of his 19th century novel “Dracula” in the ancient port of Whitby. The title is taken from an early postcard.
