Bradley Hill and his wife got married in Valparaiso and said he has 500 or 600 photos of the wedding.
“These big events, you always want to remember them – and I would hate to think that my wedding album or something else may end up in a garage sale or a yard sale one day, and not end up in my family’s possession,” he said.
But that is exactly what happened with a piece of film he came across while shopping at an antique store in Rockville, Indiana – looking for décor for his movie-themed basement. He fired up the film, which featured Carol Audrey Schultz – born Feb. 25, 1939 – as a baby, right there with her birth announcement.READ MORE: Memorial Held For Beloved Barber Gunned Down On The Job In Lawndale
“It came from the antique shop. I’m not sure how long it’s been sitting there, but I mean, who knows how many times it’s changed hands since then,” Hill said.
The film showed Schultz’s first steps, and her whole life up until she was 4 years old. She would now be 82.MORE NEWS: Goodman Theater Opens For The First Time In More Than A Year
