A picture tells a thousand stories, or so the saying goes, whether it’s an old family photo, a holiday snap or a historic moment caught on film, pictures can be trigger memories and unearth forgotten lives.
Ever the budding historians members of the Enjoy Diss Facebook Group often share their memories of Diss over the years triggered by old photos and now a couple from Stradbroke are asking for their help once again.
During a spring clean, Gordon and Ellen Nunn, discovered an old portrait photograph of a man dressed in period clothing hidden behind two other images on the back of a picture frame.
Unsure of who the man in the picture is but believing he may be from the Diss area the couple -both in their 80s- are appealing to members of the Facebook group for their help in identifying him.
Gordon Nunn said: “We cannot do anything with the picture but it just seem a shame to throw it away.” Speculating that the image may be a staged souvenir photograph Mr Nunn also said he wondered whether the man’s outfit was a military uniform.
The photo yields little clues apart from two names written on the bottom of the image; ‘A Young’ and ‘J Kirkley’.
