Can you solve the Meadowvale wedding mystery?

AN ELLON sheltered housing warden is appealing for information which might help her re-unite a long forgotten wedding photo with its rightful heirs.

Claire Thomson found the framed photograph at the back of a cupboard in the home. It pictures an elderly couple at what appears to be a golden wedding anniversary party at Meadowvale, with the legend ‘Mr and Mrs Walker, 1935-1985’.

“I’ve asked the current residents, but nobody seems to know anything except that Mr Walker may have been a policeman,” said Claire. “Our system of keeping records changed many years ago, so we have no record of the couple or who their next of kin might be.

“It would be great to reunite the photo with whoever it belongs to: it’s someone’s family history.”
