One of the mystery photos.
A WOMAN is trying to identify the owner of a collection of old photographs, discovered in an Isle of Wight building.
The photos, thought to date from the 30s and 40s, were found in an old shoebox in a building in Star Street, Ryde, while it was being demolished before the site was developed into Southlands Mews four years ago.
Worker Ian Hallet found the box during the demolition and gave it to his partner, Angela Whitmarsh, of New Road, Brading, who left it under her bed and rediscovered it while moving house last week.
The photo album is inscribed "To darling Gaggs. From Phyllis, with love" and there is also a letter sent from the War Memorial Hospital, in Andover.
There is also a collection of photographs, including one marked Edith S. Howard, 74 High Street, Andover.
