An Orphan Heirloom Needs to Finds Its Way Home

A U.S. Navy photographer who went to Beirut in 1982 during the Lebanese civil war found a photograph album in the rubble of the city and brought it home with him.  He is now trying to find family members to give the album to.  Clues include the name "Didi" and the year 1975 written on the cover page, and a postcard in Arabic sent from Spain and addressed to Lydia Gatehouse in London, England.

The Daily Star of Lebanon published a story about the album on December 6.  Anyone who can help identify and/or locate the album's owners should contact the Daily Star.
