A PHOTOGRAPH of a mystery young boy on the seafront has been found in a collection of postcards.

An Argus reader, who gave his name only as Mr A Cromarty Fry sent us the picture in the hope that someone will recognise the boy.

He found it in a pack of postcards.

The photo is dated as August 21, 1988, and has a description written on the back – “Andrew along Brighton seafront” – and the message “To Tom, Love Sue”.

Mr Cromarty Fry, of Portland Road, East Grinstead wrote: “I know you print old photos of interest. This being the case, I thought you might like to have one I bought in a collection of postcards.

“Andrew must be about 40 now and it would be a shame to throw it away. As they say, every picture tells a story.”

The photograph shows the boy enjoying a funfair ride in a fire chief truck on the seafront, near a bouncy castle.

The Madeira arches can just be seen in the background, which suggests the picture was taken at the Peter Pan Playground in Madeira Drive.
