HERITAGE guardians in Morpeth are seeking more information about this old image.

The photograph was donated to Morpeth Antiquarian Society by Philippa Craig, whose grandfather RSM AM Halliday MC is pictured left of centre.

The picture was taken in 1912 or 1913 at St Mark’s Races after the Boundary Ride.

In the centre, with the bowler hat, is Coun William ‘Sandy’ Sanderson and the taller man on the left at the back is Borough Surveyor John Davison.

However, the Antiquarians know little else about the venue or the people photographed.
