Information wanted on old Lincoln photos

Black & white: Info on old Lincoln photos is wanted so a woman can find out more about her family.

Information is wanted on three old photographs taken at a street party in Lincoln.

The images, owned by Jane Scarisbrick, were originally her grandma’s, Mary Ellen Mason nee Dovey.

Scarisbrick believes the images were taken in Grantham Street, but does not know when, or any more information about the pictures.

Her grandma’s parents, Alfred and Emma Dovey, lived at 16 Grantham Street, Lincoln after World War one until they died in the 1930s.

Mary, also nicknamed Nellie, moved into the house with her husband and three sons after her mother died in 1932.

Jane also lived there with her parents until 1963, just before the houses were demolished.

The man is her great-uncle Donald Dovey, who was born in April 1900 and died February 1979 and lived on St Giles in uphill Lincoln.

He was also a professional footballer for Lincoln City in 1925 – 26 and played snooker at championship level in 1930 (against Fred and Joe Davies).

He worked at Clayton’s factory in the city. In the image, he appears to be stood in front of a “Sunblest” advert.

Please contact [email protected] if you have any information on any of the photos.
