Hi! Bruce. The railway station, from where the photo was taken, is virtually in the town centre. Yet there are only around four trains in and out each day. The town is at grid lock with cars, buses and campavans parked in every conceivable place!! yep!! thats progress for you ;.)

Greetings Anita, I always cut through the station simply to enjoy this unchanging view. The steam locos add further enjoyment too ;>)

Thanks for stopping by ;>)

Dear Bánfalvi Suzi Natusk…

Frank Sutcliffe, born at Headingley, Leeds in 1853, set up his own professional photographic studio in a dis-used jet workshop along Waterloo Yard, Whitby in 1875 and eventually established himself in more suitable premises in Skinner Street, Whitby. Frank Meadow Sutcliffe is probably Whitby's most famous artist. He became a pioneer in his chosen art form - photography. Sutcliffe's equipment was unwieldy and cumbersome. His full plate cameras were constructed from brass and mahogany, complete with hand bellows. Sutcliffe worked in Whitby from the beginning of his career in 1875, using a technique that employed wet collodian, but he soon had to move with the times, turning to the use of dry plates.

Despite his awkward equipment, Sutcliffe was able to create images of unsurpassed elegance and sensitivity. His photographs, almost all of Whitby and its environs, captured a truth not available to those working with brushes or pencils. More than any other artist of his time, Sutcliffe was able to illustrate real life. Unlike a modern photographer who can snap off rolls of film and choose the best image, each of Sutcliffe's shots had to be carefully composed. His obvious love of Whitby, Staithes, Robin Hoods Bay and other nearby villages shines through. Sutcliffe retired from photography in 1922 and became curator of the Whitby Literary and Philosophical Society, a position he held until his death in 1941.

I hope this information is helpful Natuska ;>)

Kedves Bánfalvi Suzi Natusk ..... Itt van egy rövid története a nagy Frank Réti Sutcliffe:>)

Frank Sutcliffe, született Headingley, Leeds 1853-ban megalapította saját professzionális fotográfiai stúdió egy DIS használt jet workshop mentén Waterloo pályaudvarról, Whitby 1875-ben, és végül letelepszik több alkalmas helyiségeket Skinner Street, Whitby. Frank Meadow Sutcliffe Whitby talán leghíresebb művész. Ben úttörő szerepet játszik a választott művészeti forma - fényképezés. Sutcliffe felszerelése volt, esetlen és nehézkes. A teljes lemez kamerák épültek a sárgaréz és mahagóni, a teljes kézi fújtató. Sutcliffe dolgozott Whitby a pályája kezdetén, 1875-ben, felhasználva olyan technikát alkalmazott nedves collodian, de hamar meg kellett mozgatni a korral, és fordult a szárazon lemezeket.

Annak ellenére, hogy kényelmetlen berendezések, Sutcliffe volt képes létrehozni képeket felülmúlhatatlan eleganciával és érzékenység. Fotók, szinte minden Whitby és környéke, megszerezték az igazság nem áll rendelkezésre azon dolgozik kefe vagy ceruza. Több, mint bármely más művész idejét, Sutcliffe képes volt, hogy bemutassa a valós életben. Ellentétben a modern fényképész, aki snap off tekercs film és kiválasztani a legjobb képet, minden Sutcliffe a lövések kellett gondosan komponált. Ő nyilvánvaló szeretete Whitby, Staithes, Robin Csuklya Bay és más közeli falvak süt át. Sutcliffe visszavonult a fényképezés 1922-ben vált kurátora Whitby irodalmi és filozófiai társaság, mely pozíciót töltötte be haláláig, 1941-ben.

Kérem, nyugodtan kérdezz engem a további információkat, ha szükséges;>)
