Bempton Cliffs 1900's: Egg collecting

These men are Egg collecting off the cliffs at Bempton / Flamborough. Otherwise known as 'climmers'. A rather dangerous persuit but it provided much needed food and income for communities around the turn of the 1900's. Some rare footage can be seen at the Yorkshire Film Archive.
