I own a photograph album which I bought at a car boot sale.  It contains 64 photographs of scenes in the middle east (Iraq) and India.  The album is inscribed to Ina Brown from Donald Borthwick and is dated 10th March 1924.  There are two foolscap sheets of paper detailing the locations of the photographs, many of which are of mosques and other historical buildings. I would love to know who this man was.

What is it that indicates he was born about 1854?
In the front of the album is a lose picture of a man who looks about 70 years of age.  The photograph looks contemporary with the album which is dated 1924. I therefore conjectured that the man would have been born sometime in the mid 1800s.  The album itself was bought in Wakefield.  I have looked at findmypast, but was hoping that someone could identify this man as a relative.
Here are some men who are named Donald Borthwick who lived in India.

Since the album was purchased in Wakefield, would you suspect that the Ina Brown who lives in Wakefield is the one who Donald wrote to?
