Book Fair – recognise a photograph?

By Latest News

Every year when our volunteers start checking and collating books for the Book Fair, they inevitably find a range of photographs that have been inserted into the pages of books, possibly used as bookmarks or put there for safe-keeping and then forgotten about. Our volunteer team are keen to return these photographs to their rightful owners as they appreciate many photographs reflect key moments in time and may hold fond memories for their owners or family members.

Using the power of social media we are hoping the photos in this gallery will be recognised – so if any of the above images belong to you please email claireh@linskill.org.
