The hunt is on to find the owner of a photo album.

The hunt is on to find the owner of a photo album found in Dawson Creek – that may date back to the 1930s.

Fort St. John Public Library’s Tanya Boyd says a patron dropped off the album after finding it at the local Salvation Army.

“They weren’t sure about how best to go about finding the owner, so they brought it to the library,” said Boyd. The patron would like to remain anonymous.

Boyd then posted about it on a local online history page, seeing if she could track down the rightful owner.

So far, no one has claimed the book of black and white photos, which appear to have been taken as early as the 1930s. It’s suspected the photos were taken somewhere in the Peace region.

“We actually had a call from someone in Grande Prairie who thought maybe it was theirs, but turned out not to be,” said Boyd.

“It’s getting a lot of attention, so that’s cool. It’s not everyday you find old pictures like this.” 

The dates are only a best guess, based on an older model of truck noted by commenters in one of the photos on Boyd’s post.
