Are these people related to you..?

THESE historical photographs were taken in the early 20th Century and the men, women and children in them all lived in the Pocklington area at that time.

They were brought into the Post by Joan Matthews, who lives near Darlington, but regularly visits Pocklington to see her mother.

The pictures belonged to Mrs Matthews’ great aunt Gladys Moorfoot who wrote information about each person on the back of the photographs.

Mrs Matthews, 65, is hoping relatives of the people in the photographs will recognise them and, if so, she is happy for them to have the pictures.

She said: “Ideally I would like them to go back to the relatives.

“Everyone has old photos and sometimes it is lovely when some come into your possession through someone else.”
