Photos returned to owner
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.
