HERALD readers have been asked to help solve a photographic mystery.
Our Herald The Past columnists Brian Harle and Alan Davison are researching architect Charles Franklin Murphy, who was based in Morpeth in 1903.
They have unearthed this picture of him from 1938, but have no idea where it was taken. It shows Mr Murphy handing an object to B Burn, the sister of the late Colonel Burn of Carrycoats whose family were involved with the Burn Fireclay Company of Morpeth.
