Do you recognize this couple? They lost these photos

Schenectady High School alumnus Henry Liebers found some undeveloped film while working in the Adirondacks this summer — and he's looking for help to identify the couple in wedding attire from the pictures.

Liebers wrote in a Facebook message Thursday that he found the film at the intersection of South Meadows and Adirondack Loj roads, just outside Lake Placid. 

He posted Wednesday on his Facebook page that he just had the film processed. Among the about 12 photos total are wedding pictures.

He said he found the film in a small plastic bag on a cement block.

"It’s a dirt road that really only leads to a few campsites and the South Meadows trailhead," Liebers said.

The St. Lawrence University junior was working at the Adirondack Mountain Club and a few people at work had mentioned the film had just been sitting there, he said.

Out of curiosity — and because he is an amateur film photographer — Liebers went to pick it up.

It's Kodak Portra 400 film, Liebers said. In addition to the wedding photos, there's pictures of the MacIntyre Range.

One of the two photos pictured above shows the ski jumps in Lake Placid.

Liebers wants to mail the negatives and pictures to the couple — and it would be wonderful if The Daily Gazette readers could help him in his mission.
