Another old wedding photograph postcard find I am trying to reunite also has useful clues written on the back to help with trying to identify the people in it, which could hopefully lead to it being reunited with a family member.
The photograph is of a bride and groom, with family members as below:
On the reverse is written George THORNTON and Amy PARKINSON, again as below – could these be the names of the bride and groom?
On a quick check of marriage registrations on the internet I found that George THORNTON married Amy PARKINSON in the June quarter of 1922 in the North Bierley Registration District in Yorkshire.
Again I have been lucky enough to find a copy of the marriage certificate online that shows that George THORNTON married Amy PARKINSON on 3rd April 1922 in Eccleshill in Yorkshire – George’s father is named as Squire THORNTON and Amy’s as Charles Chappel PARKINSON.

George is aged 24 and his occupation is shown as an Electric Car Driver and Amy is aged 22 and her occupation is shown as a Winder – their addresses are shown as being in Bradford.
Do you have a connection to the THORNTON or PARKINSON families as it would be wonderful to reunite this lovely old family photograph with a relative if possible.
