The Evocative Images That Lay Undiscovered On A Camera For 60-Years


And The Winner Is

Daily Mail

One of the surviving photos shows what appears to be a race. The men look very focused and are wearing what looks like team sweaters.

Wipeout

Daily Mail

This blurry surviving photo shows another view of the race. Note the spectators in the background.

Undeveloped film left in a camera usually survives for a maximum of 20 years, so the fact that even six pictures survived is very unusual and special.

Jacks wasn’t sure who was more surprised about it, she or the developer from the photo shop, Snappy Snaps in Southend. The pictures show a time before urban development and the busy on-the-go lifestyles that most people live today.

Jacks turned to social media to trace the people in the photo. She posted two of the photos on Twitter. At first, no one came forward, but a local historian contacted her and informed her that based on the fashions as well as the houses in one of the images, the photos date back to the early 1950s.
