The find dates back to the 70’s era and were discovered in the attic of the end terraced home in Burcroft Road.

The new home owner said: “I can’t throw them out, these are somebody’s memories, I wanted to try to reunite them with the rightful owners.

“I know how important photos are to me so wanted to give this family a chance to have them back.”

The find was made as work was carried out to run new cables.
