Mystery over photos found in garden shed

MYSTERY surrounds a hoard of family photographs discovered in a garden shed in Blackbird Leys and the Oxford Mail needs you to help identify them.

Hundreds of images have been carefully placed in albums, most of which appear to have been taken from the 1970s and 1980s.
Last night the 55-year-old said: “I just couldn’t see the photos being thrown away. There is a great big bag of them.

The images, some of which are loose or in envelopes, show a family at parties and celebrations, weddings, on holiday, and often with friends smoking and drinking at bars and pubs in the 1970s.

One envelope is addressed to an ‘Anne Meares’ and there are other references to ‘Anne and Frank’ in several old birthday and Christmas cards, included in the hoard.
One black-and-white picture is dated August 2, 1945, showing a 16-year-old girl called Pam Dwyer.

The names ‘Ryan’ and ‘Kristin and Brooke’ are written on the back of some photos of young children. There is also reference to the Currill family and an Oxford Mail newspaper cutting, showing Donna Currill as a pupil at Cardinal Newman Middle School in Cricket Road, Oxford.
