Jeff found the 35mm kodachrome transparencies in water damaged box that was in a skip. He has since spent the past few days trying his hardest to salvage them.

The images that he discovered were captioned ‘Ifield Holiday Centre (Junior School) August 1972’. Now Jeff is looking to match the names to the faces in these photos.

A selection of the photos can be viewed here.
