A photo of a man from the washed-up photo album.

Berri from South Lismore got a sad but beautiful surprise after the most recent flood when a photo album full of memories washed into her yard.

A trip OS.

The important part remains.

The photos, in an album with loose leave plastic sleeves, turned up in a backyard on Union Street.

‘I found it in my yard after the second flood. I tried to salvage them as quickly as I could but some were completely ruined. I had to cut them out of the plastic sleeves to try to avoid the ink smudging – it smelled disgusting!’

A man features in a lot of photos and the album is full of wonderful adventures.

‘I’m hoping to reunite it with the owner. They were damaged (quite beautifully) by the floodwater, but not completely.’

‘They’re dry and I’m keeping them safe in Suffolk Park for the owner to get in contact.’

If you think this is your photo album, email: [email protected] – Attention Eve.

The photos are quite beautiful after their watery process.
