Wow.. What a story... glad your parents got to see the picture.
That's my Mum and Dad, circa 1951. None of the family, including my parents, knew of the existence of this photograph until 2018, shortly before my Mum died. My brother saw it by chance on a visit to Dreamland. Mum and Dad both saw the photograph for the first time in 2018 and Mum died November that year. Dad passed away in 2021. It still blows my mind that a photograph of them at the beginning of their life together should reveal itself to us at the very end.
