Snappy days for OAP Tam

Irish Daily Mirror - - MEDIA -

Tam and pho­tos PEN­SIONER Tam Wat­son has been re­united with long-lost snaps of his mum on a char­ity shop cam­era.

Pho­tog­ra­pher Graeme Webb, 40, put out a pub­lic ap­peal af­ter de­vel­op­ing the film from a Box Brownie he bought for €28.

He has now re­turned the cher­ished im­ages, thought to be from be­tween 1956 and 1970 to re­tired printer Tam, 73, from Ed­in­burgh.

Tam, whose mum Sally died in 1998, said: “I opened a news­pa­per and saw her. I had to pinch my­self to make sure what I was see­ing was real.”
