While 13-year old frequent garage-sale devotee Addison Logan surely enjoys the thrill of the unknown when searching for odds and ends at local rummage sales, nothing could have braced him for what he found this past Thursday, May 24, 2012 on another one of his garage-sale excursions.
According to The Wichita Eagle, the publication which first broke the remarkable story of the Kansas native, Logan picked up an unassuming Polaroid Land Camera in workable condition for just $1. The elated youngster then rushed home to share his findings with his grandmother, hoping to find the appropriate way to use it as well.
Upon opening the cartridge, Logan found that there was still a photograph lodged inside, an image which he quickly showed his grandmother, Lois Logan. Here’s The Wichita Eagle’s report of what happened next:
Lois Logan said she looked at the photo and saw her son, Scott, who died in an auto accident 23 years ago.
The photo showed Scott sitting on a sofa with a high school girlfriend, Susan. Lois guessed it was taken in 1978 or 1979, about 10 years before his death. She didn’t remember the photo, but thought it must be one of her old ones.
The uncovering has led the family to believe that occurrence is a miracle, and Scott Logan’s attempt to show young Addison that he is continuously watching over him.
Whatever the case may be; this story is yet another reminder of what interesting and amazing things may be lurking around a garage sale near you.
