Old photo waits for family

THE staff at East Bundaberg's Lifeline Superstore are continuing to find family photographs that people might not be aware have been donated.

Last week Lifeline business manager Andrew Armstrong found a cache of photos belonging to the McKinlay family and issued a call for any family members to collect them.

This week Mr Armstrong said he had found a photo of a wedding party, and he wondered if there were any family members left in Bundaberg who would want it.

"It's a framed photo of a wedding party," he said.

"It's members of the Pegg family who got married."

Mr Armstrong said there were still people with the surname Pegg living Bundaberg, but he was unsure if they were related.

He said the photo was in a plaster frame, of the type that was used in the 1930s and 1940s.

"It's a black and white photo that has been coloured," he said.

"It's very well done."

Mr Armstrong said he would like to reunite any family members with the photo.

"That would be far better than someone unrelated paying a few dollars for it," he said.

"If it was my family members I'd like to have it up on the wall at home."

Mr Armstrong said someone at the store put the photo aside after it came in with a load of donations.

"The volunteers are very good at recognising stuff that might be valuable," he said.

"I was just going through the pictures and valuing them when I saw it."

The McKinlay family was reunited with its photos.
