Photos of an Unknown Family

A man called Frank found a set of 44 photographs in a garage sale in South Carolina 15 years ago. When he got the developed he found a set of intimate family photos from the 1940s. But they weren’t just any old family snaps – they are taken by someone with a lot of talent. Frank has been searching for the identity of the family and photographer ever since.

By posting the photos on Flickr Frank hopes to uncover the identity of the mystery family. He has picked up various clues from the photos themselves –  a lot seem to be in Delaware and there are quite a few of unfinished buildings which has led Frank to speculate that the photographer was an architect.


Frank estimates that this baby would now be 68.
