Help identify this photo please

Quite some time ago now we came across this photo lying on a roadside verge by Waresley Wood.

It was found by the track leading in to the wood – not the official entrance where the car park is, the one further up the road from there, toward the Gransden end of things. It was amongst a very small number of other items which looked for all the world as if they’d been chucked out from a car window as it traveled along. It struck us as odd, not the sort of usual fly-tipping or littering you’d normally come across there or anywhere else really.

One scenario that worried us was that these small items might have come from a burglary and that the thief or thieves, having looked at their swag, were getting rid of the evidence. If that was the case then this photo might well be somebody’s treasured memento and they’d be pleased to see it back. So we’ve been asking around to see if anyone knows anything about it. No-one in GamArch could help, David Allen of the History society doesn’t recognise it nor do any of his contacts.

Our best shot now is simple publicity. So, if you know anything at all about this photo please do get in touch. Any and every scrap of info might help us to get the photo back to where it belongs. Contact us on Facebook, Twitter or email us via julialmanley at
