A MYSTERY surrounding a set of family holiday snaps has been solved.
On Friday the Examiner published pictures of a family enjoying their summer holidays.
They were found by Dalton woman Carolyn Broadhead when she was sorting through some of her late mother's possessions.
But after spotting the pictures in the paper readers soon shed light on the situation - and we can reveal the man in the picture is former Huddersfield Town manager Eddie Boot.
The pictures belong to the Hughes family, of Albany Road, Dalton, and were taken while they were enjoying a break in Newquay in the early 1970s.
Dad Stewart, mum Angela and children Sarah and Lee regularly travelled to the Cornish coastal resort with their friends, the Boots.
Mr Hughes, who took the pictures, said: "The other person in the photo is Mrs Boot and the gentleman in the photo is Eddie Boot, who used to be the Town manager.
"They're the godparents for the children.
"They lived next door to us and we went on holiday with them for about 13 years."
He said he didn't realise this set of pictures were missing because he had many that were similar.
But he said that somewhere in the back of his mind he knew there was a gap in the family back catalogue.
Mr Hughes added: "It was amazing to see it on Friday and I will try and contact the lady in question.
"I'm now going to contact Mrs Boot's son to see if he knows if there's any connection between the lady and his mum."
This is now the only mystery that remains; how they got from the Hughes to Carolyn Broadhead.
As for that, Mr Hughes admitted: "I haven't a clue!"
Eddie Boot managed Town between January, 1960, and September, 1964.
