    Wedding photographer Laura Babb was given a Kodak Brownie, a now iconic vintage box camera, as a gift. Inside was a roll of undeveloped 127 film, which appeared to have been snapped inside the camera.

    Assuming that the film wasn’t salvageable, the previous owners of the Kodak Brownie discarded it. Laura’s husband, Peter Wilbourne, has now developed the film and discovered some captivating images from an age gone by.

    Laura has now scanned the images and published them on her personal blog. She’s posing the question: “I know the chances are slim but how amazing would it be to reunite these people with their pictures?”

    TNW readers, we know you’re up to the challenge. Game. On.
