The pictures and a letter had been sent by Nanny Depear but unfortunately there was no forwarding address or even a postmark on the envelope.

Miss Cooke has received some mail for the couple in the past, but does not believe they have lived at the address since 2008.

She said: “These pictures mean a lot to someone and it would be nice to return them to the family.

“The letter felt important and there was no return address or any other way of tracing them.”

Within the letter, Nanny Depear apologises for cutting short a recent phone call and explains that she has had an operation.

The pictures include a number of shots of young children and babies in the 1980s, a holiday snap of a man in white shorts from the 1970s and a black-and-white shot of two children from the 1950s. A newspaper clipping was also included in the envelope.

Miss Cooke had contacted the letting agents and even tried to trace the family through the phone book but without success.

She said: “I have lived here for two years and no-one of that name has ever come forward. I would really like to return these pictures. If they were mine, the last thing I would want is for something to happen to them.”
