Biographical history

Looking at Scotland's People, the genealogical website for the National Records of Scotland, and WikiTree, we can find an Edith Helen Nobbs, born in Russia around 1872, who married Charles John Robertson Milne in 1903 - the marriage certificate shows that Edith's mother was Agnes Fletcher Nobbs, nee Brown - hence we can assume that she is potentially the creator of the associated album.
