An Edwardian photo album

This object is an Edwardian photo album, it belongs to my nan's next door neighbour. In the album there is a photo of her Grandad in the pub that he owned. When he died she was left in charge of the pub. In the picture you may be able to see a large house, there are horses and dogs outside, they are about to go hunting and we could see that the horses have been clipped. We think that the people who owned the house must have been very rich. We think that the big house had many rooms and that they probably had a butler and a chef. We wondered if some of the people in the album owned the house as there were lots of photos of men dressed in officer's uniforms.
