Can you help return album to family?

 

Some ingenious sleuthing has uncovered a link between an Edwardian photograph album, and our area.
The album was bought at a Gloucestershire antiques sale by a woman whose son took on the challenge of trying to find relatives of the people pictured.
His enquiries led him to Mexborough, and specifically to Mr Stewart Wentworth Nicholson, who is listed at the Ferry Boat Inn in 1921. He had a brother and sister, Reginald Hugh (born about 1889) and Dorothy (born about 1888)
. There is also a connection with Nicholson's painters and decorators, of Adwick Road.
Some of the subjects of photographs are Tickhill, Whitby, Campsall and Owston, and in our first photo, a royal visit.
It's a long shot after such a long time, but the purchaser of the album would like to return it to the family it belonged to, so if you have any information, please email us and we'll pass the details on.
