A Bourne householder has found an unexpected surprise under her stairs.

After moving into the former Qu’Appelle Care Home in West Street, Susan Jane, as she prefers to be known on Facebook, was looking under the stairs.

Susan, who moved into the house in 2017, told Nub News: "Somebody hadn't been there for years. We dug out this box and there was some paperwork, nothing of interest, and then we found three these photos."

The house, which was previously used as a care home until 2012, was built in 1872.

Susan had wondered if the photos had belonged to any of the former care home's elderly residents, but inquiries through the Bourne, Lincs Facebook page suggest the people in the pictures were the original owners of her house.

Now, the Bourne History Society is to investigate further.

Susan added another interesting artefact was found under a staircase- a 1908 newspaper!

Anyone who can help Susan identify the people in the picture to contact her through Facebook.
