When Kent-based photographer Tim Allen picked up an old Agilux Colt 44 camera from a second-hand shop in Crayford, it came with a bonus. In the box was an exposed roll of 127 film. Well, what would you do? The same as Tim, I'm guessing: have it developed. This process was carried out by the good people of Snaps Photo Service in Bournemouth. The result, a CD of seven photos, four of which show something recognisable.
Now to unravel the mystery of the photos. Other people have been able to identify the castle as Warwick, but that's as far as it goes. Do you recognise any of the women in the photos? It's all a bit of a long shot, but doesn't ask doesn't get.
The salient details:
- The camera was an Agilux Colt 44
- It was manufactured between 1961 and 1965 in Croydon
- It was bought in a charity shop in Crayford, Kent
- The developed photos include some taken at Warwick Castle
If you recognise someone, leave a comment, or better yet, get in touch with Tim via his website. You can take a closer look at the photos there, too!
