A UNIQUE collection of old photographs of a Doncaster township over the past century has gone on display in the local library.

And next week Adrian Elderkin, the son of the late Jack Elderkin, will be giving a talk about the exhibition of images, which is currently on show in Bawtry Community Library.

Bawtry resident Adrian entitles his talk on Thursday, July 12, The Stories Behind the Pictures and the evening of reminiscences starts in at 8.30pm.

Tickets priced at £2 are now available from the volunteer staff who have taken over the library and the cost of admission includes refreshments.

The exhibition of photographs represents a pictorial history of life in Bawtry over the past 100 years.

Adrian’s dad John William Elderkin - who was always known as Jack - was born in Swan Street on August 13, 1922, and collected all of the photographs.

Jack passed away in January this year and Adrian and the rest of the Elderkin family mounted the exhibition so that they could share Jack’s unique collection with the community of Bawtry.
