Whitby Gazette reader Graham Storey sent us this photograph he discovered of a Whitby family, dating from 1917.

The image has details on the back confirming it was taken at the studio of Frank Meadow Sutcliffe.

A message written in pencil reads: “To Grandma, with love and good wishes for Xmas from Hilda and children”.

The Gazette contact the Sutcliffe Gallery on Golden Lion Bank, but as the image is not one of Sutcliffe’s more famous portaits of Whitby life, there is no evidence of who the family may have been.

Do you know the family featured in the picture?
