Sometimes LOST GALLERY acquires a dusty bin of jumbled photographs that later, on closer examination, reveal a few photographs that seem related.
By examining the age, physical format (paper size, deckled edge or straight trim), the photo-lab's stamp on the reverse and of course the actual content, they seem related, from the same camera, from the same family and sometimes taken just a few moments apart.
Here is another set of photographs rescued from a bin in an "antique" mall, this time in Wichita, Kansas.
There aren't many in this set, so this time, LOST GALLERY will present the original and an enhanced version for comparison.
All of them have names or a message written on the front of the print but only this print, labeled "Drusilla" on the front, has something written on the reverse.

THE KIDS It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
