New images do not replace old deleted ones?

I am experimenting with a website to use as an online auction catalogue.
I want to make the site as easy as possible to change from one auction to the next. I therefore thought it would be a good idea to add clickable links to images and call the files LOT1.JPG, LOT2.JPG etc.... so that when one auction was completed and the next one uploaded I could delete all of the images from the file manager and add a new set called LOT1.JPG, LOT2.JPG etc... so that the old links would still work.
However, having trialled this, when I go to the links and click on them, they are still displaying the old deleted images? Does anyone know how I can get around this problem?

make sure the images are in the same location / folder as the old ones.

Also, make sure file extensions are the same.

I don't see how it's even possible that the deleted images show because the images are displayed based on URL, if you add the same name and same file extension image, then it has the same URL as the old images, this should without a doubt replace the images.
