|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,
email us and we'll pass the details on.
