Eamon Timmins/Age Action One of the photographs from the mystery albums

Age Action seeks to reunite mystery photos with owner

Do you know anything about these photographs?

DO YOU RECOGNISE any of these photographs?

Age Action is on a mission to reunite two photo albums crammed with photos with their owners, if they are still out there.

Charity staff found the two albums in amongst a pile of clothes received into the Camden St branch, and don’t want to discard what could be treasured family mementoes.

Eamon Timmins of Age Action told that one of the albums has a leather cover and contains photos from the late 1920s and early 1930s, while the second is more modern and contains photos mainly from the 1970s and 1980s. Many of the photos in the latter album were taken in the USA.

“These are memories”, he said of the photos. “They are some family’s memories. We couldn’t with any conscience throw these albums out.”

While Age Action does receive a large volume of items from homes, such a find is an unusual one.
