Someone Finds A Photo Album Full Of Pictures Of A Grandma Posing With Hollywood Celebrities And It’s A Real Blast From The Past

Published 2 months ago

Opnieuw & Co, a thrift store located in Mortsel, Belgium, recently shared an interesting finding on their Facebook account. Among the various things donated to their store, they’ve discovered a photo album full of photos of a woman posing with various Hollywood celebrities in the 90s. People were eager to find out who this mysterious lady was and someone actually recognized her! Turns out the woman was Maria Snoeys-Lagler, a former member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), an organization of journalists and photographers reporting on the entertainment industry.

See Maria posing with the Hollywood celebrities in the gallery below – it’s a real blast from the past!

In an interview with Bored Panda, a spokesperson of Opnieuw & Co said that the store has no idea how the album got to them. “We are a thrift store and we rely on donations to fund our social workplace (we provide refugees and people who can’t find a job with work). That means someone probably dropped it off at one of our shops in a box full of other stuff as well,” said the spokesman.

An employee of the thrift store browsed the album and figured that it’s probably not something hat someone would get rid of voluntarily. “We figured out the lady’s name through her press badge in one of the photos,” said the spokesman. “Then, one of our country’s national TV stations used their contacts and located her daughter in California. Nobody has any idea how the album ended up here.”

Turns out Maria had died back in 2016 after being a Hollywood until the age of 87. Opnieuw & Co has contacted Maria’s daughter and will return the album to her.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
