Pen­sioner re­united with pho­tos

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

A stunned pen­sioner has been re­united with pic­tures of his mum dat­ing back as far as the 1950s af­ter they were dis­cov­ered in a cam­era bought in a char­ity shop.

Pho­tog­ra­pher Graeme Webb launched a pub­lic ap­peal ear­lier this week in a bid to find the right­ful owner of a Box Brownie cam­era he bought for £25.

And in a heart­warm­ing re­u­nion, Graeme, 40, re­turned the pic­tures to dadof-five Tam Wat­son who saw the pho­tographs in the news and recog­nised his mum Sally.

Graeme, from Haw­ick, who de­vel­oped the old im­ages, said he is de­lighted he was able to re­unite them with re­tired printer Tam, 73, from Ed­in­burgh. He vis­ited Tam at his home this week to hand over the sen­ti­men­tal pho­tos, pic­tured far left.
