Hurst Photo’s Before 1905 Abbey’s, Churches & Castles

The following photos are from Thomas Ockerby Hurst’s photo albums dated Dewsbury 1902 and Sept 1901. The album includes photos taken from around UK between 1894 to 1905.

Thomas Ockerby Hurst was my great grandfather who migrated to Australia in 1914.  My cousin Mary was nice enough to allow me access to the albums to digitize the photos.

These are his photos of abbey’s, churches and castles. His photos of people and places are located here.
