Photos re­turned to owner

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

Two his­toric pho­to­graphs lost in Coles su­per­mar­ket, War­ragul were quickly re­united with their owner last week.

The Gazette pub­lished the pho­to­graphs af­ter Coles staff mem­bers Caro­line and Dorothy found them in the store with no iden­ti­fi­ca­tion.

Mar­i­lyn Ma­son was read­ing The Gazette when she saw the fam­ily pho­to­graphs which she had last seen tucked into the back of a book which was also her shop­ping list. “I got such a pleas­ant sur­prise,” she said. The pho­to­graphs were taken when the fam­ily was driv­ing to Noo­jee in the 1960s.

At the time Mar­i­lyn was liv­ing in El­stern­wick where she grew up, but now she lives at Jin­di­vick.

Mar­i­lyn said she was so grate­ful to the staff at Coles who had gone out of their way to try and find her.

“I was go­ing to get copies to send to a friend Graeme Des­noy.”

His brother John is also in the pho­to­graphs. John, a na­tional ser­vice­man was killed in the Viet­nam war.

“These are very spe­cial pho­to­graphs for me so I am so glad that I have them back,” she said.
