Help us identify a photograph

We have a number of photographs from a collection that belonged to a local Rugby lady called Elsie Burbury (1930-2014). There are two photographs from the 1940s of Elsie with her sister Peggy at a personal appearance event but we don’t know who the celebrity is in the photograph with them. The photographs were found in a British Field Sports Society envelope along with another photograph of the Coventry Bees speedway supporters group.  Could either of these be the link to who this mystery celebrity is?

What's involved?

Working from home we would like you to research online to try to track down and put together some information about the person in the photograph.

Why get involved?

You'll get experience of looking at and researching historic photographs. It will help you to develop research and reporting skills.

How to get involved?

Accept the challenge and a member of staff will be in touch.
