Fort Langley resident discovers roadside photo album dating back to 1973

Lou Fasullo is hoping to find the owner and return their memories to them

Lou Fasullo, a Langley resident, was out hiking last week and came across a photo album on the side of 96th Avenue, just as it crosses the Salmon River beside the Fort Langley golf course.

Fasullo said it dated back to 1973 with many of the pictures destroyed but some still completely intact.

“As I was walking by just happened to look down and I found some old photos. There is a few photos that were scattered on the sidewalk and as I bent down to look they left like a bit of a trail leading to the photo album which I picked up and carried home,” Fasullo explained.

“I was trying to find the original owners by posting on Facebook, but no luck,” Fasullo continued, adding that this is what prompted him to contact out to the Langley Advance Times to have a wider reach.

Most of the photographs are of family events – some of children playing, some with people dressed up in fancy clothes and posing for the camera, and a few candid memories taken inside a home.

Fasullo hopes to return the pictures and album to its rightful owner.
