Please note that permission was granted by the Sutcliffe Gallery in Flowergate Whitby for me to create this painting. And I always purchase the specific photograph from the gallery, also making alterations from the original in my usual procedures.

In those days

So long gone by

Mainly in

And around old Whitby town

A photographer brilliant in his craft

Worked his magic with eagle eye.

Frank Meadow Sutcliffe

Was his name

Who with tripod

And camera large

Made stunning pictures ever new

By the harbour and from the cliff.

And then process those glass negs

A job

In itself perfection made

By that man with eagle eye

Photos that are ever still
