A former X Factor finalist is trying to trace the owner of an old photograph he found in an antique shop in Saffron Walden.
Ben Thapa, 35, one quarter of the classical crossover group G4, found the picture in an aged Welsh dresser he bought from Reed & Son on January 23.
Mr Thapa said: “I guess the dresser was part of a family house and I would guess that the picture is at least a generation old. The quality of print and slight sepia is consistent with my childhood photos, so that helps age it a bit.”
“I’d guess that the photo is thus a childhood photo of someone who was, or is, local, and I suppose it probably has sentimental value, hence my desire to get it back to its rightful owner: I imagine it’s a mistake.”
