Police are looking for the owners of a collection of photographs, some more than 100 years old, that were turned in at the Nanaimo RCMP detachment.
The photos, which include one image from 1915 during the First World War, were brought to the detachment Oct. 27 for safe keeping after they were found on the E&N Railway tracks that cross Fitzwilliam Street.
“We were quite fascinated with them as each tells a story from a distinctly different time and place,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, in the release.
Anyone with information about who the pictures may belong to, is asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345.
